Inuit Drum Song ;Arctic Bay, Nunavut, Canada

On the shores of Canada's Arctic Bay, two teenage Inuit girls sing a traditional melody. Their male friend keeps the beat with a qilaut, a drum made of stretched caribou skin that was originally used to summon animist gods during ritual services. The qilaut is also called a "wind drum."
