Spectrum Music, brings storytellers and musicians together in a special concert in honour of Canadas 150th birthday. “Tales from Turtle Island” features a remarkable ensemble of young and talented Indigenous performers to perform new works inspired by the storytelling tradition of Turtle Island, the land that encompasses most of North America.

Five new pieces by rising start Ojibwe playwright Yolanda Bonnell will be paired with compositions by five Spectrum composers. Actor Rachel Cantin will perform the pieces alongside an ensemble featuring acclaimed pow wow techno powerhouse DJ/electronic artist Classic Roots and members of the Metis Fiddler Quartet.
