Hosts Janelle Wookey and Kyle Nobess, introduce us to some amazing musicians, dancers and people from the Forks in Downtown Winnipeg, Manitoba. 

  • Burnt Project 1, the Juno award winning Winnipeg band, was founded by Daniel Boulanger, a 11 piece, musical collective. It blends elements of jazz, blues, rock, funk and traditional First Nations music. 
  • Nelson Tagoona, a throat boxer (blends throat singing and beat boxing) grew up in Baker Lake, Nunavut, where he began to write his own songs at the age of 15. Nelson lost his father to suicide, and believes that music is a means of reconciliation, having the power to heal and bring hope.
  • Daniel Roa is a multifaceted artist from Winnipeg, Manitoba. He writes and performs his music in both French and English.
  • The Asham Stompers were established in 2002, and help to preserve the history of the Métis people through the traditional dancing of the Red River Jig.
  • Ashley Richard is the Manitoba Aboriginal Youth Achievement Winner. After spending nearly a year of her teen years in shelters or on the streets, Richard made her way to her grandmother, Mary Richard in Winnipeg. Now, Ashley is now a third year Business student at the University of Manitoba.
