Shauit & Wachmnhit - Bienvenue nuitsheuakan

They come from places so far away and yet so near. Their common language is reggae. What drives them is the same social commitment, the same propensity to denounce inequality. “By doing reggae in the Innu language, Shauit clears a path that, to say the least, is unique” (Le Soleil, 2018). A recipient of Rideau and Radarts awards, a winner in the Indigenous Music Awards, he is a proud representative of aboriginal culture. The music of WachM’n-Hit, between Saharan and Jamaican sounds, between Gnawa beats and Wailers-style reggae, is filled with energy, open and joyful, but is also well and truly committed.
