Biography

We can be charectorized as a traditional style band where we use traditional instruments and blend modern themes in our sound. We started playing our music for demonstration purposes in our 45 minute performances of native north american traditional dances. Our sound came about by giving our audiences be they from community event to school venues etc. We provided a practical demonstration to the audience and we play our music and the audiences dances to our sound. This Dance Style is a traditional form of dance for the Cree People of the northern plains of Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba. The round dance style is not unique to northern alberta, where we are from, but because it is our traditional winter dance. Although we sing with the traditional hand drum style, our music is contemporary as we use both Cree and English language, as well as modern themes.
