Indigenous Is Not a Genre: Indigenous Perspectives on the Music Industry Presented by Indigenous Music West

JMM_Indigenous_Panel_Info_1080x1080.jpg (1.27 MB)

This will be a conversation, for a broad audience, about the music industry, from an Indigenous perspective with the direction of conversation moving towards Indigenous identity and labels within music, marketing, and presentation. We’ll discuss the role of ceremony, Elders, women, men, children, two-spirit, family, community, and how the music industry can learn from this. We’ll also cover cultural appropriation, reconciliation, and the autonomy and identity among artists and industry professionals who identify as Indigenous and how this contributes to their music career.

Speakers: Alethea Beetson, BIGSOUND; Chelsey Jodoin + Jaaji, Twin Flames; Curtis Running Rabbit-Lefthand, Indigenous Resilience in Music (IRIM); David McLeod, NCI FM; Elaine Bomberry, Artist Manager
