Massey Hall presents
Elisapie brings her highly acclaimed, 2019 Polaris Short List nominated album, The Ballad of the Runaway Girl, to the Drake Underground.
Ambassador for Inuit culture, Elisapie represents the wild and rough beauty of the North. The Ballad of the Runaway Girl, is the musical tale of an expatriate Inuk. She sings about the different facets and challenges of being a woman, but also an adopted child, a mother and a lover. Through this exploration of her northern roots and her femininity, we learn about an Inuk who is proud of her origins and who works for the recognition of her people's historic difficulties.
This album goes back to her roots, with both soft and raw moments and her very own mix of Inuktitut, English and French, unveiling the woman behind the music.
This is a general admission, 19+ event. We regret that this venue is not wheelchair accessible.
With the Participation of the Government of Canada
