Walking through the Fire
“Walking through the Fire” is not just a performance; it’s a harmonious journey that bridges diverse cultures and musical genres, creating an experience that resonates with the soul. This collaborative masterpiece features an ensemble of award-winning First Nations, Métis, and Inuit artists from across Canada, who join forces with the globally acclaimed Sultans of String. The show is an eclectic mix of musical styles, seamlessly blending Métis fiddling, the lively rhythms of an East Coast Kitchen Party, the passionate flair of Rumba, the raw energy of Rock, and the powerful beats of Pacific Northwest drumming. It’s a symphony of sounds that captures the rich tapestry of Canada’s Indigenous heritage.
At the heart of this performance are the incredible live artists, including Alyssa Delbaere-Sawchuk of the Métis Fiddler Quartet, the unique voice of Ojibwe/Finnish Singer-Songwriter Marc Meriläinen (Nadjiwan), and the inspiring Coast Tsm’syen Elder and Singer-Songwriter Shannon Thunderbird. “Walking through the Fire” aims to delve deep into the contemporary Indigenous experience, showcasing its vibrancy, resilience, and creativity. More than just entertainment, this show is a bridge between Indigenous and non-Indigenous communities, echoing the spirit of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s 94 Calls to Action. For those seeking an evening of cultural immersion, compelling storytelling, and musical innovation, “Walking through the Fire” promises to be a transformative and uplifting experience.
