HEAR! HERE! NIAGARA MUSIC SERIES WITH THE MARK LALAMA TRIO
FEATURING SUSAN AGLUKARK AND GARY BORDEN
This is where songs and stories come alive in Niagara. Our rooted house band, The Mark Lalama Trio is made up of the region’s most highly sought after musicians, Rich Moore, Davide DiRenzo and of course, Mark Lalama. Performances explode with energy and passion found in live off-the-floor sessions, but are grounded with proficiency and sincerity. These are the songs of Niagara ready to take on the world, and in some cases these songs took on the world and have come home to talk about it.
Nunavut’s first ever Juno Award winning Inuk singer/songwriter, Susan calls herself the accidental artist. Susan grew up in Arviat, Nunavut and with “no musical orthodoxy” to draw from, Susan’s early years were spent learning as she was headlining.
Susan’s early writing (The Arctic Rose-1992) was a series of songs drawn from the thing she had left, a life of uncertainty. The past 25 years and the following 7 albums has seen Susan set on a path of personal discoveries, cultural reconnections and personal healing, a very different path than the one she imagined when she left her home. In her singing/songwriting career, Susan is most proud about reaching a place in her life where she knows she is right where she belongs, singing/songwriting and falling in love with creating.
