I think this is a compelling time for Canadians as the lens towards First Nations folks has begun a shift towards understanding the colonial impacts our collective history shares. By fusing the European classical idiom with Traditional Powwow music I have created a vessel for the classical music community and the Indigenous community to meet equally and build new relationships.

Cris Derksen is a musician from the North Tall Cree Reserve, Treaty 8, Northern Alberta.
