Originally from the Uashat Mak Mani-Utenam community from the North East of Quebec, the author, compositor and interpret Shauit sings in french, english and also in his native language, the “innu”. This unique artist creates honest and engaged songs, with reggae/pop, dancehall and folk influences. Shauit is the only Canadian artist that genuinely combines reggae with an indigenous language. Since his last “Ep Eponym” came out in 2014, he took part in over thirty shows such as the famous night of the St-Jean in Montreal but also in the POP Festival Montreal, MUNDIAL Montreal and ROSEQ. Shauit has been working on the production of a full album that should be out this fall (2017). This artist is proudly representing the native and indigenous culture around the world.
Shauit is the only one on earth to do what he does and he does it very well!
