I Sing, You Dance

Byron Nicholai is a traditional Yup’ik drummer and singer from Toksook Bay, Alaska — a village with a population of around 600 residents. Nicholai, who performs under I Sing. You Dance., gained his popularity by posting videos of himself singing traditional native songs on Facebook as a way to inspire Alaska native kids to engage with cultural traditions and music. His page I Sing, You Dance has thousands of views now. In 2015, Byron performed at the White House.

We are thrilled to have Byron join us for the first time at Salmonfest this year.

We promise you his unique performance will be one you won’t want to miss.
