Here’s a list of six Indigenous music Video Blogs available on the web for your viewing pleasure.
Video blogs or ‘v-logs’ have been around for a few years and as the popularity of video platforms like YouTube and Vimeo grow, artists and regular people alike have this medium of v-logging to express themselves.
More and more indigenous music artists are making v-log entries for their networks and video channels. Artists such as Wab Kinew, Inez, Kinnie Starr, Don Amero, Kasp and now JB The First Lady are all using this new form of media to keep content fresh and express themselves in a digital format.
Wab Kinew chooses to use his v-log for an experience of cultural education with his “Anishinaabemowin Word of the Day” series on his YouTube channel entitled anishinabemowin.
Inez’s v-log brings you updates from on the road and also some family moments at home on her YouTube v-log series InezTV on her channel InezMusic.
Kinnie Starr’s series of v-logs is more based on comedy with her “The Hardest Part About Being On Tour” series of videos, which are about the stresses of being a touring musician on her YouTube channel MusicKinnieStarr.
Don Amero’s v-logs are more informational to his fan base with personal updates and promotion as well as his newest addition, a version of the MTV show Cribs, where he showcases his own digs in a fun video on his YouTube channel Donamero.
Kasp has one of the more populated v-log series covering promotions and news from on the road featured on his YouTube channel named kiqwilly.
And the latest Indigenous musician to hit us up with a v-log is JB The First Lady with her series debut entitled “Bathroom Diaries”. In her first instalments she introduces her v-log series and features her friend Crystal J for a beatbox backed cover of an India Arie track on her YouTube channel jbthefirstlady.
