A new streaming platform called Indigenous Cloud is being conceived to digitally preserve, present and prioritize music from Indigenous artists including Ernest Monias, Blackstone, Nakoa Heavyrunner, Wanita Bird, Whitehawk and Crowe and more, as well as to release new Indigenous content.
Founder George Parker is a music producer and label owner whose music career spans over three decades, during which he has produced over 150 Indigenous music albums in many different genres. Through the success of his record label and publishing company, Parker has supported and accumulated a large catalogue of Indigenous People's music.
A preliminary version of Indigenous Cloud currently exists at https://indigenous-cloud.com. Plans are underway for an upgraded and redesigned version of the platform, and an urgent Kickstarter campaign is seeking support for this important work - closing July 21/21. “Ultimately, we want to build a new version of our streaming music platform; one formed initially on a solid foundation so that regardless of what happens to us, this native music can be modernly preserved and protected for generations,” states the Kickstarter page.
Indigenous Cloud will include Pow Wow, Peyote (Native American Church), Hand Drum, Country/Rock, Fiddle, Gospel, Flute, Traditional, Children's Music, Christmas Music, Indigenous Music Videos and beyond. Visit the website to learn more and support the project, https://indigenous-cloud.com/.
