Event Details

The Melawmen Collective from Ashcroft, BC perform for Performances in the Park ‘Listen Live’ 2021. Presented by the Central Cariboo Arts and Culture Society, ‘Listen Live’ delivers incredible quality regional talent to you, like our unique Indigenous Hip Hop fusion act, The Melawmen Collective.

Filmed inside the historic Potato House in downtown Williams Lake as thunderstorms swept through the area, The Melawmen Collective brought messages of healing and resistance, timely and needed songs conveyed through some of the regions best Hip Hop artists (Geo Ignace and Kiva Morgan-Hall), and the lyric and rhythmic sensitivity of co-founders Meeka Noelle Morgan and Rob Hall. For this performance they were joined on bass by Matt Wiebe.

    The Melawmen Collective

    [Secwepemc/ Nuu-Chah-Nulth/ Nlaka’pamux]

    A contemporary Indigenous alternative fusion woven together with elements of hip/trip hop, rock/folk, righteous rhymes and rich harmonies, carried through with experience, manifestation, and visions of intergenerational stories of pain and healing. The Melawmen Collective brings a uniqueness to their sound like no other, drawing in a wide variety of listeners through sharing their own journeys of life through their musical evolution together. ‘Melawmen’ means medicine in the Secwepemc language, and the unceded territory of the Secwepemc People in what is know known as BC, is where co-founders Meeka Morgan (vocals, Secwepemc/Nuu-Chah-Nulth), Rob Hall (Vocals, Ghengis Ghandi’s, Ashcroft), Geo Ignace aka Geo The Voice (Vocals, Secwepemc/Cree), and Kiva Morgan-Hall (Vocals, Secwepemc/Nuu-Chah-Nulth), continue to grow. The collective is honored to be joined by Cass Greg (Bass, Tsilhcot’in) and Victor Laso (Drums, Republic of Chile).
