Twin Flames - Jaaji and Chelsey June December 2015



Twin Flames is a captivating duo that combines two accomplished and very unique singer songwriters Chelsey June an Algonquin Cree Métis Woman from Ottawa and Jaaji an Inuk Mohawk man from Nunavik and Kahnawake. Twin Flames take the audience on a musical journey across Canada and the Arctic, they echo the voices of their ancestors and depict life on the land as they sing songs in English, French and Inuktitut. They leave audiences fascinated and intrigued.

At this year’s 2015 Indigenous music Awards Jaaji’s album Nunaga won best Indigenous Language/Francophone Album of the year and Chelsey June’s Album Finding me was nominated best Folk Album. 
Jaaji and Chelsey met in the summer of 2014 during the filming of the television series TAM (Talent Autochtones Musicaux) for APTN which both were chosen to appear. Their voices matched one another perfectly right from the start creating soothing melodic harmonies. The two decided to form Twin Flames several months later.

The joining of the two artist was in a sense an experiment. Jaaji was already well known across the arctic and his music was loved and embraced by many. Chelsey also had a following of people that had taken to her roots story telling music. Starting out on a summer tour in 2015 and recording a joint album Twin Flames was a gamble. The pair were not sure how they would be accepted because of language barriers in the North and the South. Would the Inuit people be open to Chelsey June’s English/French language music and would the people of the south be open to Jaaji’s Inuttitut language music?

The Summer tour turned out to be a great success. The music of Twin Flames seemed to make the barriers disappear. The combination of both their talents proved that music should not have a language, colour or race. Music should be about how it makes the listener feel. 

Twin Flames is a combination of both their talents. Twin Flames have played over 120 shows in just 11 months since the merger began.

Jaaji plays what he considers as Inuit folk/pop/rock with an acoustic flavour and an Americana Feel. Chelsey's style is Americana Folk genre story telling music. Both share a great ability to covey emotions through their lyrics and melodies. Together Jaaji and Chelsey June leave audiences feeling fascinated and moved. Audience members have expressed their deep gratitude for the stories that Jaaji and Chelsey share along with their love for the original songs that fill people's hearts with so many emotions. The Duo released their debut Album "Twin Flames" on December 1, 2015. It will be available for download in this month. Their combined musical backgrounds and experience are sure to make this album something to look out for!
