As the month of June and Pride Month draws to a close, the Canadian Cultural Centre in Paris is dedicating the fourth episode of its Canad’AIR Podcast to Indigenous artist Greyson Gritt, aka G.R. Gritt.
Musician, storyteller, Indigenous and minorities rights advocate, Greyson loves exploring new territories to find themself.
From the blues folk of 00their beginnings, to the electro pop of their new album, without forgetting their duo with a traditional throat singer, G.R Gritt explores without ever straying too far from their core, built of strong and engaged lyrics that evoke a painful past.
Anashinaabe Metis, Greyson presents themselves as a French-speaking, transgender, non-binary and two-spirited artist.
In this musical journey, we talk about their quest to reconnect with their people and themself, about their grandmother’s violin and also about the voice they thought they had lost.
We hope you enjoy this new voyage to Canada on board Canad’AIR, the Podcast of the Canadian Cultural Centre in Paris.
