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

Hailing from amiskwaciy (Edmonton) on Treaty 6 territory, nêhiyawak tells stories—their story—capturing time through honeyed vocals and a cacophony of electronic and analog sounds. 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. Within the framework of the conventional song, the band creates and adds their own history while sharing with their audiences a unique expression of Indigeneity in Canada today.

Born in Calgary, FOONYAP started violin when she was 4. Embedded in classical music, Catholicism and Chinese culture, FOONYAP struggled 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.

Special thanks to the Viewpoint Foundation for their support. Thanks also to media partners BeatRoute (AB) and Theyyscene.
