N’we Jinan

I’m this year’s host for a music festival with some of the most successful artists in Canada

The N’we Jinan Festival is happening in Mistissini, QC., on June 24 & 25.

The festival is featuring 150 Cree youth singers and over 30 music professionals.

The announcement was made through N’we Jinan’s Facebook page:

The music festival is expecting over a dozen people.

Some artists include Mariame, who is the first signed Cree artist for the N’we Jinan music label in 2014.

Watch her music video, “As long as you are here.” (No more than 5 minutes)

KZO (Pakesso Mukash) is an Aboriginal EDM artist from the Whapmagoostui First Nation. He started his DJ career in 2013.

Listen to his work on Soundcloud:

I moved to Quebec for the summer to work as a host at a small local radio station.

The station is successful of about 700 people who listen daily for new music and interesting stories.

David Hodges, who is the executive director for the N’we Jinan music label, heard me on the radio and then approached me to host the event.

I’ll be on Snapchat throughout the event.

Take a photo below and be part of it.


I hope to see you all there. It’s going to be a great festival!
