More Info:

The debut album by Canadian composer and tenor, Jeremy Dutcher mixes post-classical rearrangement of his Wolastoq First Nation traditional music from 1907 of his ancestors singing forgotten songs and stories. The album is his contribution to his heritage and community in attempts to revitalize the Wolastoq language to the world, which has less than 100 speakers alive today. This ground breaking post-classical arrangements are truly one of a kind and recalls the mood of Rufus Wainwright's operatic performance or the haunting pop of Anthony & The Johnsons.
