I play Indigenous music weekly on Spirit of the Song, so it was no challenge to put together a playlist to honour Indigenous History month.
The only challenge was narrowing it to a one-hour show!
What follows is a tiny taste of what’s out there. I hope it convinces more listeners to dive in!
Link Wray, Rumble
Buffy Sainte-Marie, Power in the Blood
Robbie Robertson, Somewhere Down the Crazy River
Rita Coolidge, (Your Love Has Lifted Me) Higher and Higher
William Prince, Breathless
Leela Gilday, Rolling Thunder
Digging Roots, Cut My Hair
Cale Crowe, A Distance
Mimi Obamsawin, Chickadee
Julian Taylor Band, Be Good to Your Woman
Amanda Rheaume feat. Chantal Kreviazuk, Red Dress
Nadjiwan, Rebound Girl
