Album Notes
Gho-Bah/Gombaa was a project originally borne out of the resilience of the northern Dene in the face of years of colonization, residential school, and legislated cultural genocide. Gho-Bah/Gombaa is the musical story of that resilience, love, anger, sorrow, and joy that resides in us all. These songs were written and performed collectively in 2017 as a group of artists- Indigenous people and allies together in the NWT. After the shows were over we knew we had to bring the music to the people, and so you are listening now. Gho-Bah/Gombaa is not only the story of loss. It is the story of our powerful connection to the land, our deep and abiding love of our families and friends, and the triumph of the human spirit. Mahsi Cho to all the artists involved in the original production, and all of our funders for that project and this one- Canada Council for the Arts, and NWT Arts Council.
