Qajaq (kī-ˌak) is a singer-songwriter ambient duo from Chicago. They craft lush soundscapes inspired by the natural world.
Formed in 2013 by David Shay, Qajaq, the Greenlandic word for kayak, is meant to be just that: a boat for an individual to journey out to a sacred place in search for answers to bigger questions; questions about reality, social structures, the injustices of the modern world, and postmodern views on the divine. Qajaq attempts to act as a vessel to a spiritual place where maybe some truth lies.
Qajaq's new album A Canopy Above Our Endless Sky is out now!
