Event Details

Full Circle presents a VirtualFeast.ca Event: LOLA is a female Indigenous Canadian musical artist compelled to create, cultivate and share her art. Her mission is to give and be a voice: cultural and social brokerage through music and words. A 12th generation Canadian of Montagnais, Ukrainian, French and British ancestry, her heritage deeply influences her songwriting and music.

Over the past 20+ years, she has created a fiercely independent musical history that includes numerous studio session recordings, collaborations and performing around the world. She has led several Western Canada tours and had TV/film/radio placements including on TV’s “Higher Ground”, independent film “The Orchard” (Mutant Films) and CBC Radio’s current “Early Edition” theme song. She is about to release her 5th studio album, No Apologies, off which single “Hey Hey” has already aired on several CBC Radio programs, at BC Culture Days 2019 opening ceremonies and in the Talking Stick Festival 2020 promo video.

*Release dates: “Dreamer” (single) – July 31; “Freight Train” (single) – Sep. 4; “No Apologies” (album) – Sep. 25

Organizer

Full CircleFull Circle: First Nations Performance is a non-profit society and registered charity that creates opportunities for Indigenous artists. Margo Kane (Cree/Saulteaux), an interdisciplinary artist and Indigenous arts leader, founded Full Circle in 1992. Upon establishing Full Circle, Kane's vision was to make a profound contribution to the development of Indigenous performance in Canada. In 2018 Full Circle: First Nations Performance launched the Múyuntstut ta Slúlum Live Series. The Múyuntstut ta Slúlum Live Series aims to offer learning and career-enhancing opportunities to Indigenous musical artists through the sharing of ideas and knowledge and through the exploration of contemporary Indigenous music. Múyuntsut ta Slúlum comes from the Squamish Nation and means ‘to submerge/sink/immerse yourself in songs/music’. It is an open invitation to music industry professionals, established, emerging and aspiring, to work in reciprocity and from a strengths-based perspective to support and ensure the ongoing development of Indigenous music. This series has been supported by funding from Creative BC, FACTOR and SOCAN.info@fullcircle.ca #416-268 Keefer Street Vancouver, BC V6A 1X5
