Alberta Spotlight: nêhiyawak​ with FOONYAP

The National Music Centre is proud to present nêhiyawak​ with opener FOONYAP.

Hailing from amiskwacîwâskahikan (Edmonton) on Treaty 6 territory, nêhiyawak tells stories—their story. Balancing their Indigenous heritage with the present, the band blends indie-rock guitar and dance floor synths alongside steady beats of carved cedar log and hand drums.

Embedded in classical music, Catholicism and Chinese culture, Calgary artist FOONYAP grew up struggling with conformity, alongside a need for acceptance. Creating a hauntingly beautiful blend of folk and electronic, her latest album reflects her tumultuous journey to self-discovery.
