N’we Jinan

Back in 2014, producer/youth worker Dave Hodges launched the N’we Jinan music initiative as a response to the lack of artistic programming in remote First Nations communities across Canada.

Five years later, the program has visited 20+ communities, worked with 600+ youth and produced six compilation albums. But in addition to teaching skills like sound recording and music production, N’we Jinan promotes collaboration, builds community, preserves culture and gives a voice to Indigenous artists through creative expression.

In the latest DD Spotlight, we catch up with Dave and some of the N’we Jinan youth at their recent album release party in Vancouver.
