Katatjaq is an Inuit throat singing game that women used to do when the men were away hunting: "A unique and enchanting form of musical expression. A mixture of husky chanting and low growling, throat singing is actually a competition where the first person to laugh, stop, or run out of breath loses." It was nearly a lost art, but is becoming more popular among Inuit youth.
Usually performed by 2 women. They typically stand very close and hold each others arms while moving or swaying in rhythm.
