We're working with  NCI FM to take our new sākihiwē music Thursdays series for Safe at Home Manitoba to both online audiences and radio listeners across Manitoba. Each episode will be released on Thursdays from February 11 to March 25, 2021 and feature four-song performances by artists in Winnipeg, Dauphin, Opaskwayak Cree Nation (OCN), and Garden Hill First Nation.

Inuit throat singer Nikki Komaksiutiksak and her daughters Chasity and Caramello will kick off the series on February 11. Country singer Desiree Dorion, the legendary C-Weed Band, mezzo-soprano singer Rhonda Head, singer/songwriter Billy Simard, fiddle master Patti Kustoruk, and hip hop artist Mattmac round out the group.

The online episodes will be 30 - 45 minutes long and will premiere at 12:00 pm CST on the sakihiwe festival's YouTube channel and Facebook page. They'll be anchored by a four-song performance and include a tour of life in the artist's neighbourhood or home community.

The radio episodes will be an hour long and hit the airwaves in Manitoba at 7:00 pm CST. They'll include audio from the artist's four-song video performance, a playlist featuring songs by other Indigenous acts, and shoutouts to their Elders and extended family members across the province.

NCI FM reaches more than 80% of Manitoba, including 75 communities outside of Winnipeg. Close to 140,000 people tune into NCI FM each day. Please visit ncifm.com for more information.
