The National Campus and Community Radio Association (NCRA/ANREC) is calling for submissions for its national talent development initiative. After successful years with Hip Hop, Spoken Word, Electronic Dance and Roots, this year will see the continuation of the series with our fifth project, “Dig Your Roots – Indigenous”, showcasing both our own Indigenous artists as well as those who come from all over the globe.
Dig Your Roots features independent artists from all across Canada on its website as well as through a series of compilations and live concert broadcasts. For “Dig Your Roots – Indigenous”, both Canadian Aboriginal and International artists are invited to submit their work to be featured on the Dig Your Roots website, where up to 200 artists will be showcased. Following a national selection process, 30 of these artists will be chosen to appear on compilations to be released in the spring of 2006. These artists will take part in a series of regional concerts, each of which will be live coast-to-coast-to-coast on participating radio stations.
Deadline for submissions: November 23, 2005.
Please feel free to ask Antoine Bédard any question about the project by writing at firstname.lastname@example.org or visit our website: http://www.digyourroots.ca/
