More than a few Canadian musicians have expressed support for the burgeoning Idle No More indigenous-sovereignty movement. So it's no surprise that the second volume of Idle No More: Songs for Life is out just two weeks after the original compilation hit the web.
Volume 2 of the downloadable series features tunes by acts such as Blue Rodeo, Hannah Georgas, Royal Wood, and Odds. It finishes with a lovely cello piece by Anishinaabe musician Melody McKiver.
The compilations are being put together by Marty Ballentyne, Holly McNarland, Kevin Joseph, and Ron “Ostwelve” Harris, and released by Revolutions Per Minute, a site dedicated to spreading indigenous music.
