OMBIIGIZI shares live video for ‘Ogiin’ and announces Canadian tour dates
Zoon (Daniel Monkman) and Status/Non-Status (Adam Sturgeon) shared a live performance video as OMBIIGIZI, “Ogiin.” Along with the release, they announced their first tour dates.
Today’s live performance video is for a standout song from their recently released debut album, sewn together. The video for “Ogiin” is captivating, with superimposed footage of OMBIIGIZI performing the track in the studio.
“For so many Indigenous cultures, the mother is the one who holds the fort, provides the ultimate love and care,” says a press release about the “Ogiin” video. “Both for Daniel Monkman of OMBIIGIZI and for his father, they were sometimes taken from their mother’s arms. This story is a reconciliation of their collective experiences of being denied this education because of the residential school system.
Watch the video for “Ogiin” below.
OMBIIGIZI’s next tour kicks off at Massey Hall on April 20 with label partners Broken Social Scene. In reality, sewn together was recorded in collaboration with Kevin Drew of Broken Social Scene. The OMBIIGIZI 10-track collection was recorded at Tragically Hip’s Bathouse recording studio.
