SaskMusic and FACTOR Canada are presenting a special online concert in honour of National Indigenous History Month, airing 7pm Thursday, June 24 on SaskMusic’s Facebook and YouTube pages. More than a local dozen artists from different musical styles have been paired with video mentors to create unique music videos over the past weeks, and we’re excited to share this premiere with music fans. Tune in on the 24th, and watch for the lineup announcement coming soon.
Following June 25, the concert will also be available to watch on SaskTel maxTV Local on Demand.
More about this project
For our 2021 activities honouring National Indigenous History Month, SaskMusic is offering a program that seeks to build mentorship and practical skills.
Following a call for submissions, we selected artists from around the province who were interested in being paired with a video mentor to work, remotely, on creating a new live music video for use in this concert. Video mentors have been working with their artists over the past few weeks to record the best possible performance video footage and a unique capture of their song while 'working from home,' and while public health limitations are still in place.
This opportunity was directed to Saskatchewan-based, self-identifying Indigenous artists of all genders and from any genre.
In July, we will also be presenting a couple of free seminars of interest to emerging music artists. Watch for details to be announced on those!
This program is made possible through the financial support of FACTOR Canada (the Foundation Assisting Canadian Talent on Recordings with support from Canada's private radio broadcasters).
