When they Awake documents a remarkable generation of established and emerging Indigenous musicians in a moment of cultural and political resurgence. In this era of native resurgence, from Idle No More to Standing Rock, Indigenous musicians across North America are making their voices heard...and people are starting to listen. Working in every genre from Hip Hop to Rock to EDM and beyond, a generation of native musicians are channeling the pain of the past into a stirring, hopeful vision of the future. It is this generation and their astonishing music that WHEN THEY AWAKE bears witness. Featuring 20+ artists, including modern trailblazers A TRIBE CALLED RED, TANYA TAGAQ, LEELA GILDAY and ISKWé, WHEN THEY AWAKE is a magnum opus documenting contemporary indigenous musicians as they transform historical trauma into compelling art.
