Canada Day With The Conundrum At The Museum Of History In Ottawa/Gatineau
This is the first time that the Anishnabe language has been used on official signage for Canada Day.
A regally decked out Canada Car was pulled over by Ottawa Police.
The Conundrum booming out a universal rhythm at the Museum of History.
River Doucette breathed new life into her flute with Inuit throat singing techniques.
Compounding the rhythmic possibilities of throat singing, the tattooed-out Ottawa-based trio Silla and Rise (Throat singers Cynthia Pitsiulak and Charlotte Qamaniq along with earth-shaking drummer Rise Ashen) stoked up enough vocal boil to melt off a few ice caps with sinuous and serious chanting that was at times elegant and intimate and then, suddenly, fiercely primeval.
Organizers John Fletcher and Justin Holness with Drumkeeper David Hynes.
