TSF 2018 performersCome celebrate the festival’s first Saturday night by enjoying the best Indigenous music has to offer. The line-up includes alt-folk rock artist Diyet & The Love Soldier’s (Southern Tutchone/Tlingit) unique blend of contemporary Indigenous music; soulful loop artist David Morin (Metis); blues-roots artist Norine Braun (Metis), and DJ O Show (Squamish). Heartbeatz!
Heartbeatz! is headlined by Diyet & The Love Soldiers:
Born in a tent, raised in a cabin on the shores of a glacial lake in the Kluane region of Canada’s Yukon Territory, Diyet embodies her Southern Tutchone, Japanese, Tlingit and Scottish roots with a musical presence that is equally diverse and unique.
Diyet is Alternative Folk, Roots, Country and Traditional Aboriginal with melodies and stories deeply rooted in her Indigenous world view and northern life. Her songs are an interpretation of a northern reality: hard, raw and will break you if it can but at the same time, always beautiful, gentle, strange and intensely alive. She performs as a trio with husband and collaborator, Robert van Lieshout on guitar and foot percussion and multi-instrumentalist, Bob Hamilton.
Continuing to live with feet firmly planted in two worlds, Diyet’s adventurous and sometimes chaotic life is on full display in her music. She often says, “yesterday, fishing for our dinner on the ice, the next day, on the stage singing for you!” (from maverickcooperative.com/diyet-and-the-love-soldiers/)
