Pisik (also known as pisiit or piheq) are a form of Inuit drum dancing. Songs with dancing but without drumming are called aton. Each pisik functions as a personal song to a drummer and is accompanied by dancing and singing. Each drummer has his own style and are performed during gatherings. One drum is used in the performance of a pisik and often begins in a slow tempo, gradually building in intensity.
