Named one of ‘Top 10 Canadian Musicians You Need to Know’ by CBC Music, Iskwé (meaning “woman” in Cree) is bringing her empowering blend of pop, electronic, R&B, and trip-hop to the festival stages. The Cree/Dene and Irish singer’s artistry knows no bounds as she honours her diverse heritage while creating a sound that is both eclectic and undeniable. Her track, ‘Nobody Knows’ acts as a rallying cry as she shines a chilling light on missing and murdered Indigenous women in Canada. Her politically-charged, fierce album The Fight Within recently received a Juno nomination for Indigenous Music Album Of The Year. The festival is thrilled to present this strong, important, musical voice.
