The 2RMX Feast will also be live-streamed through feast.2rmx.ca
According to 2RMX Artistic Director Meeka Morgan, “This last 2 years, and especially this last year, has been a time of incredible adversity, yet the love of people, communities and Nations has held us during our toughest moments… and as Nlaka’pamux elder Charon Spinks recently stated, ‘we greet each day with graciousness regardless of what it brings.’ 2RMX is humbled and thankful to be supported by our neighbouring Indigenous Nations during this difficult period of adaptation until the day we can return to Tl’kemtsin. Until that day, we continue our work of uplifting contemporary Indigenous Musical Artists.”
