I met Joseph and Martha Manzo in southern California a couple of years ago and since then we have been working together at a few different events. So we are very pleased to announce Joseph’s first EP recording, with funded by Voices from the Nations charity. Digital tracks available now on Bandcamp or CD Baby.

It was wonderful to be back in the beautiful wilderness of northern BC. Here’s a clip on the sad history of residential schools in Canada and the restoration of drum and language happening today, using footage from last years music festival with the Tahltan Nation.
It was an honour to meet Chief Andy Carvill and celebrate with the Tagish First Nation in Carcross, Yukon, as they opened a new learning center and cultural building. A highlight was the Dakhká Khwáan Drum and Dance group.
It was so good to be back with Uncle Willie and Auntie Gracie in Tahltan country (northern BC). This was the second year that we had been invited to take part in their music festival, this time primarily so we could show them the video footage and recordings we had made from the previous year, although I did get a chance to ‘bash some skins’ with a few bands! They were so moved at a private viewing that they decided to show the film on one of the evenings of the festival.
Yesterday we headed up the Fraser river from Vancouver. After recording and filming their music festival in 2016 we are back with the Tahltan people of northern BC. Great to be back in beautiful bear country!
