"From the North" tour this fall!

I am so excited to announce that I have been selected for the "From the North" tour this fall! The tour will go through Whitehorse, Yellowknife, Iqaluit, Ottawa, Montreal and Vancouver!!

Showcasing performers from all three territories, our evening show weaves together stories, music and dance from some of the North’s most talented artists: IVA, Riit, Quantum Tangle, NÀHGĄ Sophie Villeneuve, Borealis Soul, and the Dakhká Khwáan Dancers and DASH.

Featuring throat singing, hip hop dancing, electronica-infused traditional drumming, dancing, and singing and storytelling in French, English and Inuktitut, we will share the stories of the North, how we see the world and who we are as Northerners.

The tour starts in Whitehorse - our first show being at the Yukon Arts Centre on October 22nd! I am so looking forward to meeting all the artists involved in the tour - we are starting the rehearsals in October. I encourage you to come to the show if it goes through your city - it should be a nice variety show giving you an excellent tast of the artistic scene in the North :)

See you there!

Thanks to everybody who contributed to my crowdfunding for my album!! The campaign ended today and it was a huge success!!! In numbers:

All the money collected will go towards the album recording! Here's a video of a day in Green Needle Records studios in August when we recorded my song "La Boîte Vocale" with Marc Tannahill on the guitar. Next step is to record the vocals for all the other tracks, and then it will be ready for the mixing and mastering! I am also meeting soon with the graphic designer about the album sleeve- exciting!!
