BRANTFORD – Manitoba artist Iskwe will be in concert at the Woodland Cultural Centre on Sunday, August 6, one day after performing alongside Logan Staats in Hamilton.

Iskwe herself is a singer and songwriter of Cree, Dene and Irish decent and utilizes a blend of R&B, jazz and hip-hop in works that utilize her ancestry to create stunning songs full of power. The name “Iskwe” is Cree for women, and she paints her face as an in-your-face statement that allows her to connect with her indigenous ancestry.

Her voice in 2015’s “Nobody Knows” is a cross between a rock-style Lorde and Serena Ryder, as the artist sings in tribute to 15-year-old First Nations girl Tina Fontaine. Iskwe was outraged at the incident of her murder and responded in ferocity in her work as a cry for action.

If you’d like to experience her sultry and powerful voice, doors open at 7 p.m., and admission is $10 for adults and $5 for youth and elders. If you’d like to get tickets in advance, go to the Woodland Cultural Centre reception prior to the event.
