To celebrate National Indigenous History Month, Tkaronto Music Festival is hosting a stellar array of Indigenous musicians at stackt market from June 21 to 24 — for free. For their Matriarchs Night on June 22, Wavelength is honoured to be presenting Leanne Betasamosake Simpson, the renowned Michi Saagiig Nishnaabeg musician, writer and academic, who will be joined on the lineup by Susan Aglukark, Amanda Rheaume and Semiah Smith.
Leanne’s vast and eclectic output includes major achievements in the realms of academia, creative writing and music — often at the same time. She demolished the boundaries of thesis, poem and lyric on Polaris Music Prize-shortlisted 2021 album ‘Theory of Ice’ (You’ve Changed Records) while her Governor General’s Literary Award-nominated 2020 book ‘Noopiming: The Cure for White Ladies’ (House of Anansi Press) was further enriched by the accompanying ‘Noopiming Sessions’ EP, which pairs Leanne’s excerpts with abstract soundscapes. Her work breaks open the boundaries between story and song — bringing audiences into a rich and layered world of sound, light, and sovereign creativity.
stackt market is an outdoor venue and is fully wheelchair accessible. For all other accessibility requests, please contact us at email@example.com.
