Among Aboriginal people in Canada (First Nations, Inuit and Métis), music is an integral part of daily life and a fundamental part of their spiritual beliefs. They have different cultural traditions that are reflected in the variety of their musical genres and styles.
Rachel Beausoleil offers a series of audio-visual presentations on Canadian Indigenous traditional and modern musical styles. You will hear about social context and be guided through listening and video samples. These lectures are offered in a bilingual format.
