NÀHGĄ is a Tlicho Dene interdisciplinary musician that utilizes a variation of effects with his instruments and voice to create dynamic layered compositions that house anecdotes of electronica, hip-hop, and metal/industrial music; he also plays atmospheric livelooping music that’s perfect for gatherings and events. NÀHGĄ creates an enveloping atmosphere with his live performances and strives to reclaim his culture through music and art; inspired by technology, culture, and northern legends.

ABOUT

“NÀHGĄ” is the Tlicho/Dogrib word for “bushman”, which is known in legend as the spirit of the woods in the NWT; which serves as a reminder to respect the land, water, and all their inhabitants. The beaded eye-cover that is worn is a visual representation of the obscurity and mystery of what this spirit is, and also to pay respect to our traditional artists and craft-makers with a sci-fi influence.

NÀHGĄ appears with support from Government of Yukon, Arts Fund.
