Innu Reggae & Dancehall

Originally from the native community of Maliotenam in Northern Quebec, Shauit is a singer-songwriter and composer who sings in French, English and his native Innu language. Shauit delivers a mature, honest and committed form of dancehall reggae with songs that speak of love, hope, respect, peace and the environment. Shauit is an original talent who credits his thirst for discovery for powering his musical journey.

Shauit has toured Canada from coast, to coast, to coast performing at over 300 festivals and gigs. He also toured in Europe and alongside Aboriginal rapper Samian for three years. On July 1, 2010, he was an invited artist performing for her Majesty the Queen and Prime Minister Stephen Harper. At another event, Shauit was praised by Governor General Michaelle Jean for his Creole version of a song about his homeland.

In 2004, after an impressive start to his career, Shauit launched his first EP, Shapatesh Nuna - an independent production with songs exclusively in Innu and on-lines sales of over 2,500.

After more than 3 years of touring with Aboriginal rapper Samian, and many appearances and interviews in the Canadian media (CBC, Télé-Québec, APTN, Musique Plus) about the song, "The Nomads", Shauit is now turning his attention to writing and recording his forthcoming and long-awaited commercial debut album.
