On today’s edition of The Current, three members of the RPM crew spoke with guest host Duncan McCue about music and the Idle No More revolution.
“Does every revolution have a soundtrack?”. We know it does—and it was an honour to discuss RPM, revolution, music along with the recent release of our Songs for Life compilations: Volume 1 and Volume 2.
The ideas of the Idle No More protests may nor may not catch on, but some of the music it’s inspired is already part of a new aboriginal songbook. With Idle No More protesters calling for a Global Day of Action on Monday to mark the return of the House of Commons, we chat with three Indigenous artists behind the Idle No More soundtrack.
