Native America North: Five Local Aboriginal Acts Perform for Influential Industry Presenters at the Pyramid, March 24
Manitoba Music's Aboriginal Music Program will be taking over the Pyramid Cabaret on March 24 for a showcase of emerging Aboriginal artists, dubbed the Native America North Showcase. The event -- which features sets by country singer/songwriter Jerry Sereda and Desiree Dorion, new country duo D’Aoust Brothers, singer/songwriters and rapper Lorenzo, and teenage pop singer Savannah Rae Boyko -- offers the performers an opportunity to connect with the industry tastemakers and continue to build on their success. CBC Music, the event's media sponsor, will be on hand to host the event.
The five acts will perform for the influential panelists in town for the Aboriginal Music Live presenters panel on March 22 at Manitoba Music. Visiting speakers include Patti Shaughnessy of Ode'min Giizis Festival, Saskatchewan Indian Gaming Association’s Adele Boychuk, Sky Bridges of APTN’s Aboriginal Day Live, and Shawn Termin of the National Museum of the American Indian in New York.
