Black Bear

Based In: Quebec, CA

Black Bear Singers are Atikamekw First Nation from Manawan Quebec. We have been interested in Powwow music since 2000 and we have never seen such a thing as a Powwow drum group working with musicians from different styles of music until now. Meeting members from A Tribe Called Red was very eye-opening for all of us. We discovered a new style of making music and we are really happy to be part of their music.
