knotted thread Within the first minute of listening to this I started crying. I could not and did not want to stop the tears. I can honestly say I have never been that emotionally sliced through sound. This has taken me somewhere I needed to go. Favorite track: Qonute.

Yuu Heartfelt and gorgeous. What wonderful music! I heard one of the songs from this album on the radio recently, and it was so beautiful that I started crying. :D I'm so glad that you've shared this with the world. Favorite track: Essuwonike.

Tristan Heinen such a unique and necessary collection of songs. The flow and connection between the new and old creates a futuristic sound - excited to hear what comes next. Favorite track: Oqiton.

    Wolastoqiyik Lintuwakonawa is the debut album by Canadian composer and tenor, Jeremy Dutcher – which involves post-classical rearrangement of his Wolastoq First Nation traditional music. Granted access to the Canadian Museum of History, Jeremy discovered wax cylinders from 1907 of his ancestors singing forgotten songs and stories that had been taken from the Wolastoqiyik Nation generations ago. The album is Jeremy’s contribution to his heritage and community in attempts to revitalize the Wolastoq language to the world, which has less than 100 speakers alive today. This collection of ground breaking post-classical arrangements is truly one of a kind and recalls the mood of Rufus Wainwright's operatic performance or the haunting pop of Anthony & The Johnsons.
