In Eekwol’s world, mothering, music and academics are chaotically coordinated into a delicate balance. As a dedicated new mother, hip hop emcee and graduate student at the University of Saskatchewan, Eekwol astounds her listeners with honest, direct and revolutionary words that come from places both original and groundbreaking. With a lifelong background of Plains Cree Indigenous music, she invites the audience into a space of experimental hip hop unique to her land and place while respecting the origins of hip hop. Eekwol is currently working on her 5th album, which will be released in spring 2012.
