Chuck Copenace is an Ojibway jazz musician based out of Winnipeg MB. He shares his story of recovery, spiritual awakening and how traditional ceremony changed his musical outlook. He is one of a very elite group of indigenous musicians who honor their traditional melodies by incorporating them into his work; composing and performing new and compelling music that successfully unite creativity and spirituality.
The Chuck Copenace Group is his own groove based jazz project formed in the spring of 2015 to perform his original music which is a unique blend of indigenous ceremonial music, R’nB, Funk, EDM and Hip Hop. His group’s repertoire includes reconceptions of music by Roots Manuva, Wayne Shorter, Arvo Part and Freddie Hubbard. His most recent compositions are a brand new fusion of Sacred Melody with contemporary jazz.
