A Juno Award-winning electro-pop artist, iskwē, which translates to “blue sky woman,” spotlights the importance and plight of Indigenous peoples and territories in Canada. Her command of music styles includes jazz, R&B, industrial pop-rock, post-rock, and trip-hop. Centuries of historic injustice, systemic racism, and environmental degradation fuel her powerful lyrics.

Bing Concert Hall will be transformed into an immersive, multispace venue for the first time, with iskwē’s theatrical concert beginning in the Artist’s Garden, moving to the Bing Studio, and then to the concert hall. Through visual installation and lighting, Indigenous instrumentation and vocals, and live movement and dance, the enigmatic and intensely visceral concert experience centers on internal transformation over time––the emotive powers of the seasons, catharsis and creation, the resilience and survival of Indigenous people, and the lasting power and hope that follows transformation.

Curator's Note

I was first introduced to iskwē while curating an outdoor music series for Massey Hall in Toronto. Since then, she has become one of Canada's most thrilling voices, creating multi-disciplinary spectacles that both entertain and shine light on important issues.
