Indigenous Music is not Niche: A Conversation about Place, Change, and Transformation with Local Indigenous Artists
In his 2019 Juno acceptance speech, Jeremy Dutcher, speaking to fellow Indigenous nominees, commented: “All of your work changes this place, and it deserves to be considered outside of this category. Because our music is not niche. Our music is saying something.” The “Indigenous Music is Not Niche” production would carry forward this conversation and highlight the diversity and vitality of Indigenous music today.
This discussion highlights the diversity of Indigenous music, both contemporary and traditional, and demonstrates the theme: Indigenous Music is Not Niche: A conversation about Place, Change, and Transformation with Local Indigenous Artists.
