Cris Derksen Quartet

"Derksen creates undeniably modern music that mixes folk, classical, dance, and aboriginal structures and tunes with electronic beats [...]" - MusicWorks

 

JUNO-nominated Cree artist Cris Derksen is an internationally respected Indigenous cellist and composer who weaves her classical background and her Indigenous ancestry together with electronics to create genre-defying music. The ensemble includes the talents of Cris Derksen, Anishinaabe Hoop Dancer Nimkii Osawamick, Tuscarora/ Gaelic Singer Rebecca Benson, and drummer Jesse Baird who ties the group together with his signature pop culture beats and inventive improvisation.
