Edzi’u is a mixed race Tahltan and inland Tlingit artist, songwriter and composer. Her songs are an incarnation of her family’s ancient tradition of storytelling, realized by designing sound through vintage and current audio recordings, electronic instruments and the voice. Edzi’u received a diploma in music composition at Vancouver Community College, and is currently completing her music composition undergrad. Her most recent body of work, Kime Ani, samples audio from old recordings of three generations of her matriarchs and grandmothers stories. Her songs are vessels of history, tradition, and adaptation; a record of Indigenous experience through a contemporary Indigenous lens.
