VICELAND is getting ready to premiere the new RISE series and the trailer features my “Pow Wow Carnival feat. Little Creek Singers” track so I figure it’s a good time to offer up the single as a free download for everyone looking for some new powwow step. The song is available from the link below and we’ll be posting it on streaming services like Spotify, Apple Music, and Google Play in the next couple weeks.
- Pow Wow Carnival feat. Little Creek Singers DJ Shub 3:47
VICELAND’s RISE travels to Indigenous communities across the Americas to meet people protecting their homelands and rising up against colonization. The series makes it television premiere on Friday, January 27. Check the VICELAND website for full details.
The official poster for RISE was created by Cheyenne Randal (https://www.instagram.com/indiangiver).
About the Song
Song title: Pow Wow Carnival feat. Little Creek Singers
Songwriting/Publishing: Dan General, Little Creek Singers
Release date: Friday, January 27, 2017
DJ Shub hired the Little Creek Singers to perform the vocals for this song. The Little Creek Singers are Anishinaabe, Haudenosaunee, Cree, and Algonquin singers who joined forces in 2012 to promote pow wow music and protocol to younger generations of Indigenous folks across Turtle Island.
The artwork for the single was created by Jay Soule (http://www.chippewar.com) and it references the Tree of Peace, which serves as a symbol of the unity of the Nations of the Haudenosaunee confederacy.
T-Shirts: T-Shirts with this “Tree of Peace” design are available for $30 CAD. Please visit http://djshub.bigcartel.com/products to get yours today.
