Du teiwekan à l’électro
- 53 min
Long ago, men, women and children of all ages, clans, allegiances and nations were united by the vibrations of the teweikan. In the hands of singer-songwriters Pakesso Mukash (Cree/Abenaki), Shauit (Innu) and Moe Clark (Métis), it continues to be a powerful tool for communion. With its folk, electro and reggae tunes, the teweikan – which means traditional drum – still strives to create bridges between generations, the living and the dead, territories, the conquered and the unsubdued.
By following the three musicians in their respective communities, we will discover all the vitality of the Aboriginal artists here, the causes that are dear to them and their profound inspirations. We will take the opportunity to trace the history of First Nations music, from teweikan to electro, from Montreal to Hudson Bay, from the Canadian plains to the North Shore.
