ALBERTA (CelebrityAccess) — The Sakamoto Agency announced the signing of First Nations drum and vocal group Young Spirit, to the international roster.
The group was created with the goal of empowering Indigenous/Native American/First Nations youth with music and language and is noted for their extensive use of the Plains Cree language in their Round Dance and Pow-Wow songs.
While the group is a well-known fixture on the Pow-Wow and Round Dance circuit, they broke through to the mainstream earlier this year when they were nominated for a Grammy Award in the Best Regional Roots category.
“Young Spirit is a modern example of an ageless tradition, and through their focus on retaining their culture, we are lucky to experience powerful music and lessons that speak to our hearts when we listen. Not only are they a tremendously talented and entertaining group, but they are also dedicated, hard-working folks who make great efforts to encourage youth to realize their value and follow their dreams. We are honored to welcome Young Spirit to the roster,” said Sakamoto Agency’s Paul Biro.
