images-1 copy 5The N’we Jinan Tour is a music initiative that brings a mobile recording studio into schools and community centres across First Nation communities in Canada. The tour is a collaborative project commissioned by the Cree Nation Youth Council in tour1 Quebec. The program is aimed to create an environment where youth can express themselves musically and creatively under the guidance of a professional music producer. As there is a need for music programs in many First Nation communities, the N’we Jinan offers a dynamic approach to music education. Participants learn about recording, music production, song writing, performance, marketing and design. Within the studios’ residency, original songs are created, containing messages that focus on cultural identity and uplifting messages. The tour is documented by a professional film team where interviews and live performance sessions are captured, encouraging youth to emerge from their shells and to express themselves.
