Presented by Jessie Lloyd, Mission Songs Project is performed by a vocal quartet. Searching for the secular songs that were sung after church, The Mission Songs Project explores the day to day life on the missions, settlements and reserves through music. From cultural identity to love and loss, these rare songs consist of almost forgotten stories that can now shed light into the history of our Indigenous elders, families and communities. The Mission Songs Project performed at Calgary Music Festival in Canada as part of an artist exchange program with the PFFF.
