Aboriginal Music in Contemporary Canada: Echoes and Exchanges edited by ethnomusicologists Beverley Diamond and Anna Hoefnagels is a 503-page book just issued in the McGill-Queen's Native and Northern Series. The 22 scholarly essays by a wide range of authors demonstrate the vitality of the current Indigenous music created by First Nations, Inuit, and Métis musicians in Canada. From the Mi'kmaq powwow, a Dane-zaa tea dance song to hip-hop and theatrical music the book expands the general reader's knowledge of Aboriginal music. In addition to the essays the book features interviews of contemporary musicians such as Sadie Buck, Florent Vollant, Gilles Sioui, Beverly Souliere, Jimmy Dick, Marie Clements, Sophie Mersty, Columpa Bob, Walter Denny, Gabriel Desrosiers, Christopher Scales, and Garry Oker. The book has numerous photographs, bibliography, and detailed index. This is a ground-breaking volume that adds a considerable amount of understanding to the Indigenous music scene in Canada.
