Edzi’u is a mixed race Tahltan and inland Tlingit sound 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 has a degree in music composition from Vancouver Community College, with a minor in classical voice. Her body of work, Kime Ani, samples audio from recordings of three generations of her matriarchs and grandmothers stories. Edzi’us songs are vessels of history, tradition, and adaptation; a glimpse of her world view and life experience through a contemporary Indigenous lens. Edzi’u and her work has been featured at imagineNATIVE, Talking Stick, and on CBC Radio Reclaimed.
