Alanis Obomsawin talks about Bush Lady and upcoming performance

 

Alanis Obomsawin, one of Canada’s foremost documentary filmmakers will be showing a different talent Friday night in Montreal when she performs from her album Bush Lady.

The seven track album was originally released in 1985 and was reissued three years later.

In June, a 30th anniversary issue was released.

For decades Obomsawin has fought for justice and gave Indigenous peoples a voice through her lens as a documentary maker.

Now it’s her voice that people will hear when she performs.

“So until the time I started to sing oh, my God – I almost feel I do not have a voice I was so uncomfortable and finally when I started to sing I guess something else come to me I was very touched by how welcomed I was,” Obomsawin told APTN News.
