ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The Album:
Kîyânaw
Cree | kee-yaa-now
Us, We

"We are a family. We choose to do our best to be kind to one another, to respect ourselves and each other, to nourish our child, to protect him, to help him cultivate his cultural identity as well as the confidence to stand tall. And we know that we cannot do this alone; that it takes a community to help a family succeed. We acknowledge Canada’s dark history, and we choose to move forward, to create a future in which our child can not only live safely, but where he can feel that he belongs, and is recognized for the gift that he is. Kîyânaw is an album of hope and gratitude for the world that we live in. We believe that music heals, and that stories, both personal and political, have the power to transform our world-views and the attitudes we have toward each other; which in turn helps our family thrive. From the thunderous Pay No Mind, to the introspective Prayer, Kîyânaw is a collaborative effort; a collection of beautiful and unique folk and folk-blues songs. With this album, we encourage the reclamation of each other's respective cultures while choosing to be stronger, together."

The Duo:
It’s folk music that’s brimming with the kind of chemistry that could only come from a husband and wife. Plains-Cree guitarist, Jason Burnstick, and Francophone-Métis singer-songwriter, Nadia Gaudet Burnstick are award-winning duo: Burnstick. Two performers whose voices and languages blend together with ease, Burnstick pushes the boundaries of contemporary folk music, weaving together the unique sounds of vintage Weissenborns with intriguing vocal harmonies, while allowing the simplicity of beautiful melodies to shine through. Between their witty banter and delightful stories, it is hard to deny the magic they create as they command the stage with their palpable performances. In 2015, they journeyed into the world of children’s music, the time to create an award-winning all-original lullaby album that married languages and bridged cultures. Coming back to their folk roots, Burnstick released its first single, "Pay No Mind" in 2018, topping the charts of NCI's Indigenous Music Countdown in Canada. And in 2019, their song "Prayer" was featured in the important award-winning documentary: nîpawistamâsowin: We Will Stand Up. With their long-awaited debut album "Kîyânaw" , Burnstick encourages the reclamation of each other's respective cultures while choosing to be stronger, together.
