TORONTO – Walking Through the Fire is a musical multimedia experience that celebrates the spirit of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s 94 Calls to Action that includes Indigenous and non-Indigenous artists to work together to find a path forward. A seminal participant in the project is Toronto-based Anishinaabe singer/songwriter Marc Meriläinen-Nadjiwan.
A few years ago, Nadjiwan was contacted by Chris McKhool from The Sultans of String.
“He wanted to record a collaborative project,” he said. “A few years later, it evolved into this amazing live touring show.”
Walking Through the Fire features First Nations, Métis, and Inuit artists, drumming of the Pacific Northwest, Northern Cree pow wow singers, and contemporary artists including award-winning fingerstyle guitarist Don Ross, poet Duke Redbird, and others who will perform with the Sultans of String.
Nadjiwan is geared up and excited about the performances.
