iskwē with the Kitchener Waterloo Symphony Performance 

As part of the National Indigenous History Month events across campus, Indigenous Initiatives Office is offering campus community members a chance to stream artist, musician, and creator iskwē in her performance with the Kitchener Waterloo Symphony (KWS) 

Indigenous artist, musician, and creator iskwē joins the KWS for a collaboration featuring music from her latest award-winning album, acākosīk, and previous acclaimed releases. A collection of sonic explorations that blur the lines between sources and styles, acākosīk incorporates more intense and urgent tinges of alternative, post-rock, and even industrial. The cohesive-yet-combustible result tips a cap to modern innovators like Florence + The Machine and FKA twigs while simultaneously borrowing sounds accumulated over centuries by iskwē’s Cree and Métis ancestors.

Andrei Feher, Conductor
