Katie Johnson and the Adaka Cultural Festival

I met with Katie Johnson just 4 days after the final day of the Adaka Festival, and it was clear things were not really slowing down.  She had just gotten out of an interview with CKRW radio in Whitehorse and was working in the Whitepass building when I came in to chat with her.  Sitting at a conference table overlooking the Yukon River, Johnson filled me in on what she’s been working on, and what is next for First Nations Arts and Culture in the Yukon.

Black & White Album Project

The purpose of the Black & White album project was to bring youth in Whitehorse together. It was meant to act as a common ground where they could put their differences such as age, money, race, where they come from, aside and make some good rhythmic music. The musical talent in this town often goes unnoticed. With that in mind, we decided to go looking for underground artist in the Whitehorse area. It did not take long to find some incredible people who never had the chance to record in a professional studio. While we were hard at work, we also had a lot of fun, making it less work and more of a passion, which is needed in today’s society. Each and every artist that partook in the project agreed that they needed more music in their lives.
