ABOUT

The Indigenous Sounds series enables securing showcase slots for talents emerging from Indigenous communities, highlighting the art being created across Canada. It is built around showcases and professional development activities, mentoring sessions and targeted networking activities. This unique project among showcase events, initiated by Mundial Montréal has created a bridge to new audiences and new touring opportunities into the mainstream circuits.

“I appreciated learning more about the current trends and conversations Canadian presenters are having especially about ways to present and engage the Indigenous community.”
Jordana Phokompe, Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, New York, United States

HISTORY

2017

  • Showcasing acts are Quantum Tangle, William Prince, Lacey Hill, Amanda Rheaume, and, for the first time, international artists Emily Wurramara (Australia), and Nive & the Deer Children (Greenland).
  • The 2017 edition of Aboriginal Sounds is proudly supported by Slaight Music in collaboration with FACTOR.
  • After a discussion with the advisory committee and internally, the series has been renamed Indigenous Sounds in order to reflect the importance of respecting self-determination and the self-identification of Indigenous people
  • The advisory committee for 2017 is made up of Nadine St-Louis (Sacred Fire Productions/Centre Culturel Ashukan)Alan Greyeyes (Manitoba Music), Shoshona Kish (Digging Roots), and Andre Dudemaine (Montreal First People’s Festival).
