Chilliwack is so proud.

First Inez Jasper was invited to shine her light by performing at the 2014 Aboriginal People’s Choice Music Awards in Winnipeg last weekend.

Then she was called on stage and honoured with two major APCMA awards for Best Producer Engineer, and Best Pop Album, for Burn Me Down.

The recognition is hot the heels of a Juno nomination for the album last spring.

The uplifting tunes are a blend of pop with hip hop, R&B, and traditional First Nation vocals and instrumentation.

“I want to promote a positive image of indigenous people to the world through my music,” said Jasper. “I want the world to know that my nation, our people, are rising from oppression and that change is here and it’s happening right now. Let’s celebrate!”

In the past six months, Inez has been a featured performer at Indspire Awards and shared a stage with A Tribe Called Red at the Exchange Event Centre.

She is set to announce an acoustic tour this spring.

The APCMAs are part of the Manito Ahbee Festival, which includes a powwow, marketplace, cultural education day, etc. The festival aims to create a deeper understanding and powerful affirmation of Aboriginal cultural rebirth and renewal. It showcases the talents, gifts and abilities of Aboriginal artists from all nations. It is truly a celebration of Aboriginal music, arts, culture and heritage not seen before by the broader public through the many festival events.
