2014: Groupe Folklorique Montagnais – Tshekuan Mak Tshetutamak

One for your Christmas list, this is taken from new Light in the Attic compilation 'Native North America (Vol 1): Native North America (Vol. 1): Aboriginal Folk, Rock, and Country 1966–1985'

"Largely unheard, criminally undocumented, but at their core, utterly revolutionary, the recordings of the diverse North American Aboriginal community will finally take their rightful place in our collective history in the form of Native North America (Vol. 1): Aboriginal Folk, Rock, and Country 1966–1985. An anthology of music that was once near-extinct and off-the-grid is now available for all to hear, in what is, without a doubt, Light In The Attic’s most ambitious and historically significant project in the label’s 12-year journey"

Available here.
