Tuesday, April 18 ┃ Noon to 1 p.m.

Tegler Student Centre, Concordia University of Edmonton, 7128 Ada Boulevard

Featuring nehiyaw/Cree drum songs and teachings by James Minoose from Alexander First Nation. The drum reminds us of the place where the festival will take place and the original songs and sounds of the people who have lived here since time immemorial. This will be followed by a presentation from Tian Ip on the Bianzhong, a one-of-a kind instrument dating back to the early Warring States Period (c. 433 B.C.) and excavated from the tomb of Marquis Yi Zeng in 1978.
