Product Description

While music has flourished in most of the communities of Newfoundland and Labrador, certain places are recognized for the intensity and innovation of their music scenes.  In Labrador, one of them is Makkovik.  A coastal community located about 210 kilometers north of Happy Valley-Goose Bay, Makkovik is home to nearly 400 residents, most of Inuit descent or mixed European and Inuit descent.
