  • Starting at: $35.00
  • Venue: Koerner Hall
  • Presenter: Luminato Festival and The Nathaniel Dett Chorale
Inspired by the surge of the Indigenous global revolution, BIZIINDAN! features the diverse music and voices at the forefront of this movement. Biziindan’ means listen or listen to’ in Anishinaabemowin, the language of the Anishinaabeg (Ojibwe peoples).  
Through the power of music, BIZIINDAN! encourages listeners to actively consider their roles and responsibilities to the land, water, and Indigenous ancestral territories. The relentless activism of the featured artists will reflect their truths and determination to shift, disrupt and make change. 
A highlight of the evening is a tribute performance to the legacy of Mi’kmaq and Scottish artist, Willie Dunn, a pioneer of protest ballads and advocate for Indigenous rights. This finale performance will feature a newly commissioned arrangement of Dunn’s single written for his prolific film and Canada’s first music video, The Ballad of Crowfoot (1968-NFB).
