Melissa and Corbin hail from the Wildcat Community of Acadia First Nation in South Brookfield, Nova Scotia. The couple share a passion for the traditional teachings, crafts, art and music of the Mi’kmaq, and are invested in the revival, education and continuing practice of the Mi’kmaq culture and traditions among their people and others. Together, they make beautifully hand-carved flutes tuned to the harmonics of Mother Earth at 432hz. Their music practice is centered around the concept that, with careful attention and technique, music can be a deeply healing practice for both player and listener alike.
We’re grateful to have these two join us for an opening ceremony and a Sunday afternoon performance.
