I AM GPH EP36 iskwé - Improving the Health of Indigenous Communities Through Music

EP36 iskwé - Improving the Health of Indigenous Communities Through Music

Bridging cross-cultural aesthetics while exploring her own struggle to both fit into and breakaway from modern Western archetypes has been an important part of iskwé’s artistic vision since the release of her WCMA nominated self-titled debut album in late 2013. Her debut single “Nobody Knows,” produced by Juno Award nominees The Darcys and featured in the Netflix series Between, captivated audiences by turning a stark spotlight on the more than 1200 missing and murdered Indigenous women in Canada. Unafraid to challenge the convictions of her detractors by honoring her heritage, standing steadfast in her viewpoints, iskwé’s artistry knows no bounds. Blending soulful, breathlessly delivered lyrics colored by the many shades of human nature with a sonic palette that takes its cue from the shadowy atmospherics of the 1990s Bristol sound, iskwé’s music revels in her strength of self and that is her true rallying cry. In this episode we learn more about the inspiration for her purposeful music and the important role music can play in the health of an entire community.
