Event Details

The FREE 2 Rivers Remix (2RMX) MOVABLE FEAST of contemporary Indigenous music and culture will hit the trail to declare “WE ARE STILL HERE” with an astonishing line up of more than 40 Indigenous cultural warriors. 2RMX MOVABLE FEAST micro-festivals will culturally nourish the 5 Indigenous Interior Canyon communities of Tl’kemtsin (aka Lytton) on June 30, St’at’imc (aka Lillooet) on July 2, Tuckkwiowhum (Boston Bar) on July 4, T’Kemlups (Kamloops) on July 6 and St’uxwtews (Cache Creek) starting on July 8. 2RMX feels eternally grateful to be hosted in the neighbouring territories of our brothers and sisters after the Lytton Fire consumed our Nlaka’pamux host community on June 30, 2021.

Line up:

4:00 – 4:15  MC: Ronnie Dean Harris Welcome & Prayer by LFN

4:15 – 4:45 Big Willie G

5- 5:30 The Spiritual Warriors

5:40 – 6:10 Ecko Aleck

6:20 – 6:40  Butterflies in Spirit

6:45 – 7:15 Eekwol and T-Rhyme

7:25-7:45  Geo The Voice

7:45 – 8:15 The Melawmen Collective

8:25 – 9:25 Ritchie and The Fendermen

9:30 – 10 Curtis Clearsky & The Constellations

2RMX has pivoted to a 2022 MOVABLE FEAST because of the catastrophic fire that destroyed our previous live festival site – along with 90% of Tl’kemtsin/Lytton. 2 Rivers Remix Society continues to support our affected Indigenous communities that have in the last year suffered from waves of the COVID pandemic, catastrophic wildfires/flooding/infrastructure destruction and the confirmations of hundreds more unmarked graves at Indian Residential Schools across Turtle Island (following the 215+ at T’Kemlups).

  • Eekwol and T-Rhyme

    Eekwol and T-Rhyme

    [nehiyaw/Dene]

    Eekwol and T-Rhyme are seasoned rappers from nehiyaw and Dene territories, currently living in Saskatoon. The For Women By Women Project (FWBW) was born out of an awakening and realization that in our music, we need to create the dialogue and steer the narratives to be our own truths. As a nehiyaw iskwewuk (Indigenous women) we are living the results of the damage that colonization placed on our families. Guided by the intentions of creating a good life and a protected path for our daughters, we are changing the story, one rhyme at a time. With beats by Justin Knight, Shane Keepness and Doc Blaze, FWBW is the beginning of a movement. We’re here to lift consciousness, not asses. We’re here to reflect our matriarchal ancestors, not in a bathroom mirror selfie. We are here to recognize our power.

  • The Spiritual Warriors

    The Spiritual Warriors

    [Lil’wat]

    The Spiritual Warriors are a Father and Daughter team of Leroy and Daisy Joe from the Lil’wat Nation, they fuse the songs, chants and language of the Lil’wat/St’at’imc peoples with contemporary roots, reggae cultural music.

    Their debut CD recording entitled “Ancestors” won Best World Music Album at the 2019 Native American Music Awards. The songs will have you dancing, singing, and celebrating Lil’wat / St’at’imc language and culture.”

    I started picking up melodies from our hand-drum songs and finding the chords for it. I’m a huge Bob Marley fan and I love reggae and ska and world music, and I just kind of turned it into this whole kind of reggae-meets Ð it’s a fusion,” explained Joe of how the music of The Spiritual Warriors came to be. “I’m Lil’wat, I wanted to write songs in my language and this was the way to do it.”

    According to Joe, the traditional chants and beats of Lil’wat music lent themselves to modern music in a pretty peculiar way, but the resulting sound just seemed to click.”
