An Indigenous Perspective on Music - A lecture by Barbara Croall - Stratford Summer Music
Event Date: Friday Aug. 4th, 2017
Event Time: 11 am - 12 pm
Host: Stratford Summer Music
From an Anishinaabekwe viewpoint this musical lecture focuses on how sounds, their meanings and experiences of immersion within nature are all integrated in music-making, past to present. Ms. Croall will also perform on the pipigwan, the traditional Anishinaabe cedar flute, and explain how its history guides her to cultural protocols for her own compositions, classical to world roots.
Active internationally from the start of her career in 1995, acclaimed Odawa First Nation composer and musician Barbara Croall from Canada (Manidoo Mnissing, Giniw dodem) has received world premiere performances of her music in several European countries, the UK, the United States, Asia, and Latin America.
