Indigenous Vibrations is part of the Múyuntsut Ta Slúlum Live Concert Series. Múyuntsut Ta Slúlum comes from the Squamish Nation and means ‘to submerge/sink/immerse yourself in songs/music’ and is an open invitation to music industry professionals, established, emerging and aspiring, to work in reciprocity and from a strengths-based perspective to support and ensure the ongoing development of Indigenous music. This series has been supported by funding from Creative BC.
Loosely inspired by Réjean Ducharme's book of poems L’Hiver de force, Straight Jacket Winter is a semi-autobiographical work about the the growing phenomenon of mass mobility and its repercussions for our social and emotional lives, and for our sense of who we are.
