Indigenous artists from Canada will take centre stage at Indigenous North events in international markets next month. Supported through the Indigenous Music Export Program at Manitoba Music, export-ready music entrepreneurs will head to Australia and Germany to perform for and connect with key industry players to build their music businesses beyond borders.
The initiative is part of a new emphasis on Indigenous music export at Manitoba Music, building on an existing slate of Indigenous music development programs. The program is made possible through the support of Western Economic Diversification Canada, FACTOR through the financial support of the Government of Canada and Canada’s private radio broadcasters, and Manitoba Film & Music.
Three artists will soon head Down Under across oceans to the BIGSOUND Festival & Conference in Brisbane, Australia. Manitoba Music will host an afternoon showcase on September 6 at X-Cargo featuring bilingual Métis artist Renée Lamoureux, award-winning hip-hop outfit Snotty Nose Rez Kids, and contemporary folk duo Twin Flames.
