New Exciting House Music: Rise Ashen and Flying Down Thunder

“Rise Ashen & Flying Down Thunder met on Ottawa's frozen Rideau Canal in 2009 & have been pollinating One Nation ever since. It was important for the pair to create music which was truly an amalgam, true to both the underground club sound and the traditional vocal style of the Anishinabe. Through their compositions, they are propelling traditional sounds into a fresh and new realm, while respecting the roots of Anishinabe music.

Producer, DJ and Dancer Rise Ashen has devoted his life to the study of sound and movement. He mashes and blends house and breaks with traditional and popular music from across the globe. Flying Down Thunder is a respected pow-wow singer and traditional dancer from the Algonquin Nation. His inspiration for music comes from the words of his elders. Anishinabe people, he was told, needed to build a bridge between Aboriginal people and non-Aboriginal, as they learn to understand one another.”
