The Jerry Cans (Pai Gaalaquatikkut in Inuktitut) are a band from Iqaluit, Nunavut, who combine traditional #Inuit throat singing with folk music and country music. Their music is largely written in Inuktitut, the indigenous language of the Inuit people, with lyrics which "reflect the challenges and beauty of life in the #FarNorth". Their 2016 album, Inuusiq/Life, was released on Aakuluk Music, Nunavut's first record label, which the band's members established in 2016 "to support Inuit and Indigenous musicians".
The band consists of vocalist and guitarist #AndrewMorrison, vocalist and accordionist #NancyMike, violinist #GinaBurgess, bassist #BrendanDoherty and drummer #SteveRigby. The band's name derives from #Rigby once trying to build a drum set out of old jerrycans.
The band performs also on Thursday 16 March at the Sooki Lounge#Belgrave VIC Special Guest #Spiritus
