In case you missed the Indigenous Music Countdown, here is a recap of the top 10 tracks for the past week!
Coming in at 10 is Plains Cree rapper The RA11N with IYKYK, a bass and drum forward track she released this summer. At number 9 we have Cry Cry Cry by Fara Palmer. This upbeat rockabilly song is dedicated to her mother, as well as her partner Walter (aka Grampa Ducks).
Number 8 is Land of Skoden by Finnish–Ojibway artist NADJIWAN. In the number 7 slot for the week is Son of a Gun by Mi’kmaq artist Q-502. With powerful lyrics and a heavy sound, this track is reminiscent of bands like Rage Against The Machine.
Miesha and the Spanks come in at number 6 with Dig Me Out, which was inspired by the unmarked graves that were uncovered on the grounds of former residential schools last summer. Innu singer Claude Mckenzie is in the number 5 slot this week with his folk-pop single Uptime.
In second place is folk-rock tune SKODEN by Digging Roots. Last, but certainly not least, the top song for this past week was Wouldn’t That Be Dun? by Country artist Desiree Dorion, featuring Dave Wasyliw. This fun love song captures the feeling of being in a new relationship, and captured enough hearts to land at number one on the Indigenous Music Countdown.
