TeamMixtape | isKwé

I am honoured to collaborate for a second year on The Searchlight Mixtape. Last year, I was invited to be a part of a 16-artist/act collective releasing a tape of our respective CBC Searchlight tracks. The tape was downloaded over 1000 times, and we got press around the world, as well as plays on SoundCloud and the CBC Music page. This year, 14 of us from the original group have a new tape. I’d like to present each of my mixtape collaborators and tell you a little bit about their music and message.

First up: Iskwe. Her page on Facebook: isKwé muzik. Of Cree and Irish descent, this Manitoban is raising awareness through her music for a very important issue: Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women. Many believe that not enough has been done to investigate the deaths and disappearances of these women. Through her Searchlight song Nobody Knows, Iskwe gives them a voice. If you want to find out more about the issue, please follow APTN National News, Iskwe, and Canadian public figures such as Tanya Tagaq. Use the ‪#‎MMIW‬ hashtag when tweeting about it. http://music.cbc.ca/#!/artists/isKwe
