New Constellations tour to include arts workshops for Indigenous youth

November 12, 2017

A tour described as a “half-music, half-literary” event is about to hit 13 cities and First Nations communities.

The New Constellations tour will feature music acts, spoken word, as well as mentorship workshops geared toward Indigenous youth. The tour is bringing together both Indigenous and non-Indigenous artists and organizers say audiences should expect an experience they haven’t seen before.

“Indigenous and non-Indigenous artists rarely perform or create together, so this is an amazing opportunity to see what happens when they do,” said Jarrett Martineau.

“With where we are in this country’s history, that collaboration is more important than ever,” he said.

Martineau, who is Cree/Dene, is the co-founder of contemporary Indigenous record label RPM Records. RPM Records has joined forces with The Basement Revue, a live event series that combined artists from different disciplines, to put together the tour.
