We warmly invite you to the Talking Stick Festival’s Summer Reverb Gala – an evening of vibrant entertainment and rekindling connections.
The gala will include soulful jazz on the grand piano, masterful jigging, and music by the Melawmen Collective taking centre stage and showcasing their unique blend of contemporary Indigenous fusion that beautifully marries genres like hip-hop, rock, folk, and thick harmonies. The night will be enriched with an array of lively performances, and promises to be an unforgettable celebration of Indigenous art and culture.
We can’t wait to celebrate with you.

Melawmen Collective

Contemporary Indigenous Fusion woven together with elements of hip/trip hop, rock and folk and thick harmonies, carried through with experience, manifestation, and visions of intergenerational stories of pain and healing. The Melawmen Collective was formed with a vision to create connections between Indigenous People and all others through music & story, developing our shared historical consciousness towards what the Secwepemc call ‘The Human Beings’.
