Discovering the beauty, intrigue, pride and sorrow of Canadian Indigenous music.That is the topic surrounding this weekend's Camerata Nova concert - Taken. Missed Sarah Jo's interview with Andrew, Mel and guest composer Jeremy Dutcher? Watch the video here!
It also showcases three premières by Jeremy Dutcher, a New Brunswick Maliseet composer/vocal artist now living in Toronto; Lindsay Knight (Eekwol), a composer and hip-hop artist extraordinaire from Saskatoon; and our own Andrew Balfour offering a dramatic work about Frobisher taking Inuit back to England as “curiosities.”
Taken is Camerata Nova’s contribution to the national truth and reconciliation initiative.
