RPM Podcast #004: "New Traditional"


In our fourth episode, RPM looks at New Traditional, beginning with the question: What is it? And how can something be new and traditional at the same time?

Perhaps it is music made new today but in a traditional style, perhaps it is any music that comes from our people.

Ostwelve talked with two giants in the field of New Traditional music - Jennifer Kreisberg, Tuscarora artist from the groundbreaking all-female drum group Ulali and Lil'wat musician and composer Russell Wallace, one of the first Indigenous artists to experiment with samples of traditional music - to get their take.

Representing the East and West Coasts of Turtle Island, Jennifer and Russell offer many insightful - and a few differing - views on the subject.
