Details: Hart House and CIUT are pleased to support Indigenous Education Week at U of T with a unforgettable concert performance by Juno Award winners Digging Roots; followed by an artist talk/Q&A led by Jamaias Da Costa host and producer of CIUT’s Indigenous Waves.
After four years of heavy touring in cities and remote corners of Canada, the US, Europe, Mexico and Australia, Digging Roots is ready to share their latest album ‘For The Light’. Inspired by their travels, ‘For The Light’, firmly inhabits roots and blues with a nomadic wanderlust; confidently exploring other terrains from the inner cities, the back roads and all the places in between.
Their latest project, is rich with subtle references and sounds of their Indigenous roots. The lyrics go on further to tell tales of travelers, troublemakers, lovers and freedom fighters. There are stories of desperation and resilience, of simple pleasures and wide open spaces. The album’s title track is sung in Anishinabemowin and English. This talented duo has received many accolades and fans for their rich, honest and thoughtful music.
