Blending tribal funk with Inuit soul music, Pamyua hail from the northern reaches of Alaska, bringing their unique style and sound to Aotearoa for the first time.

Combining traditional Yup’ik Nation melodies with contemporary vocalisations, native masks and cultural dances, Pamyua (pronounced bum-yo-ah) share indigenous rituals and ceremonies, showcasing the pride and history of their Arctic Circle heritage for all to enjoy. Drums, vocals and storytelling come together in a foot tapping, rhythmic musical delight. With its name meaning ‘Encore’, or ‘Do It Again’, you will be calling out for more.

“We’re making our music to save lives – to keep our culture alive, and to give our young people something that they can look up to... our music really has a higher purpose.” —Pamyua’s Stephen Blanchett (Qacung)
