It’s International Indigenous Day at the First Nations Pavilion in Vancouver!
Up tonight: Tjupurru, Adjagas, Kinnie Starr and the Borealis Quartet.
Tjupurru is a member Djabera Djabera tribe of the West Australian Kimberleys, and performs on a slide didjeridu. It’s wild! Check it out on the video below. Would love to hear his take on the Russian ice dancers and their controversial aboriginal routine. You won’t get that on his Web site, but you’ll find out everything else about him, along with more music, here.
The members of Adjagas are Sami joikers (or chanters) from the indigenous peoples of northern Scandinavia. Watch the video (above) and check out their MySpace page, here.
Kinnie Starr is back tonight (read about her and watch a video in yesterday’s post, here.)
