Music Makers – The Power of Indigenous Music

Concert: Rhythms & Rattles – A Look at Indigenous Music

Indigenous music is by its nature participatory; it lends itself to socialization.
Songs come from the natural world and from dreams, often expressing a deep
appreciation for life and sustenance.

On October 27, 2018 Rene Meshake, Jani Lauzon and Sadie Buck (Storyweaver) performed at the Gathering Place by the Grand River in Oshweken, Ontario, for the audience. Refreshments were served and the audience was invited to speak with the performers.
