It just takes one sunny sunny day to dispel all the winter grumpiness, doesn’t it. So here we are at that wonderful time between frost and flies. Take advantage and get outside as you much as you can.
Its been some time, five years, since Leela Gilday issued an album but her new album, ‘North Star Calling’ is coming out this year and the single “K’eintah Natse Ju” has just been released.
In a press release Gilday says the track is “about the legacy of colonization and its impact on our (Indigenous) family relationships- part of what happened in residential school was the dismantling of the Indigenous family structure. This was intentional- if you take away children from their families you deprive them of the love and cultural traditional values that growing up in a loving home gives to them. This song is about some of those relationships. Part of this was inspired by the tragic deaths of Colton Boushie and Tina Fontaine." Leela will be at Hugh’s Room in Toronto May 10.
