Maison Fairbairn House Presents their summer concert series, this year streaming from their beautiful heritage barn.
Tune in this week at 7:30 PM for a performance by Anachnid here.
Anachnid, Woman from the sky who falls on earth, Indigenous Singer-songwriter of the Year of the Socan Foundation is a multidisciplinary Oji-Cree and Mi’kmaq artist based in Montreal. Her totem animal, the spider, has eight legs, and Anachnid embodies just as many complex personalities: poisonous spirit, young woman in love, caring grandmother. She presents her spiritual and fun musical universe with a first album in February 2020. Dreamweaver is a marriage of emotions and sounds, hybrid and sensual style of electro-pop, trap, indie, soul and hip hop, animal sounds, drum and flute evocative of her ancestral cultures. On stage, accompanied by her DJ and saxophonist, Anachnid interweaves bitingly accurate political response with straight up sass in her dance floor hits before sliding into soft aching romantic tracks and remarkable fragility. She represents the voice of a new generation of Indigenous creators: strong, emancipated and non-negotiable.
