There’s new music being made every moment, and here are the three newest releases from Indigenous artists for the month of March!
The debut full-length album from A Tribe Called Red has been long awaited and much anticipated to say the least. Released this week as a free download, the purveyors of “pow wow step” flex their creativity through the diverse musical landscapes of hip-hop, dancehall, moombahton and electronic styles.
Last but not least, a very exciting release from Delmore Recordings is a recently unearthed recording by Karen Dalton. 1966 features Karen solo on banjo and guitar, plus four duets with Richard Tucker. The recordings are intimate, unfiltered and stirring. You can get 1966 digitally, on CD or vinyl at delmorerecordings.com.
The award-winning and hugely popular rap group Winnipeg’s Most starts their first Western Canadian tour this month and have released a promotional video to tell us all about it.
Next week Winnipeg’s Most, along with DJ Dow Jones, will start their tour from their hometown of Winnipeg and head west from there. The boys have already sold out shows and will continue to add dates to the tour so keep an eye out if your town isn’t on the itinerary yet, and let them know you want them to come to you!
