Aboriginal music artists in Manitoba will have their work on display at the HMV music store inside Portage Place Shopping Centre.
HMV and the C-Weed Band announced Wednesday the opening of the Aboriginal Music Rack. The rack will feature all genres of music, from country, gospel, rock, roots, pop, rap, and hip-hop, to Pow Wow music, Métis fiddle, traditional instrumentals, and others.
“We know not all music lovers are computer savvy or connected to online shopping, and there are many who still want hardcopy CDs of their favorite artists,” said Errol Ranville, president of music distribution company Cweedband.com Ltd.
The initiative was also welcomed by the Manito Ahbee Festival, which begins in Winnipeg today and runs through November 4.
