Classic Canadian Songs From Smithsonian Folkways CD

  • $1599

Canadian identity was once truly a mosaic - of disparate regions and small communities widely dispersed over a vast and inhospitable landscape. Classic Canadian Songs from Smithsonian Folkways showcases the rich musical traditions from generations of European settlers and contrasts with that of Aboriginal peoples fiercely determined to preserve their ways of life in the wake of colonialism and its injustices. 30 classic tracks, over an hour of music, 32 page booklet w/ extensive liner notes & photos.
