Funky Mamas say thanks to Igloolik


It is with great thanks to the people of Igloolik that The Funky Mamas write this letter.

From the moment we landed in your community we felt extremely welcomed and honoured to be there. Being part of the Rockin’ Walrus Festival made us feel like we were part of history in the making.

We enjoyed sharing time with your children and community members and other performers from across the North.

In particular, we would like to thank all the wonderful volunteers who made the festival so terrific. Without your vision and hard work , the festival wouldn’t have been such a roaring success.

We have travelled many places in Canada and beyond to perform and have never felt so welcomed and well taken care of. To be blessed for our safe journey home by the audience, given carvings of appreciation on behalf of the festival and to share in traditional food with community members camping on the land made this festival a truly memorable experience.

It is without a doubt that each one of us will hold this experience dear to our hearts. We hope to visit your fine land again.

With admiration and love,

The Funky Mamas
