Girls Rock Camp: Chords of confidence and co-operation

Photo: Carmen Leah

I was privileged over the summer to be allowed to drop in on Toronto's Girls Rock Camp, hopscotching from room to room as various groups were working out songs. It was a marvel to witness girls teaming up musically:

"Well I think it might work better in F-sharp."

"You think so? Let's try it." (they jam)

"Or maybe we can try this chord?"  (audio sample)

"Oh that works better!"

A Tribe Called Red: Dropping beats, fighting against Aboriginal invisibility

"We've definitely come in at a moment," DJ Bear Witness of the Ottawa-based A Tribe Called Red (ACTR) tells me on the phone in the midst of the group's summer North American tour.

As the fastest growing demographic in Canada, it was only a matter of time Aboriginal influence would infuse urban culture. Last year represented a "groundswell" in the movement and struggle for Indigenous rights. There's greater vocalization across Canada and beyond challenging how Indigenous cultures have been framed, appropriated and overlooked for generations.
