Twin Flames is a captivating husband and wife 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. Despite polar opposite backgrounds, Twin Flames found a common musical language. Together they take the audience on a musical journey across Canada and the Arctic.
