Songs of LabradorPrinted Music - 1993
The people of Labrador have always sung and invented songs to explain, overcome or laugh about life. For this collection, Tim Borlase has gathered more than 130 songs that reflect the history and the culture of the people who live in this remote peninsula between the Gulf of St. Lawrence and Ungava Bay. Singing and composing songs have been at the heart of human experience for hundreds of years. In the harsh Labrador environment, where mere survival is a constant preoccupation, the making of music has always been of crucial importance. This volume includes songs written in Inuktitut, Innu-Amin, English and French, offering an intimate glimpse into the life of the people of Labrador.
