The barriers Aboriginal artists face

Posted on

I'm often asked about the barriers that Aboriginal people face when it comes to building careers in the music industry.  For me, the barriers are both cultural and economic in nature.

I found an artical online from the Canadian Press that speaks about some of the cultural challenges that Aboriginal artists face in the Country music scene. The article draws on the experiences of rising stars Shane Yellowbird and Crystal Shawanda with additional background from Manitoban legend Ray St. Germain.
