Wow! What an album:

Info from Bandcamp "Wolastoqiyik Lintuwa:konawa is the debut album by Canadian composer and tenor, Jeremy Dutcher – which involves post-classical rearrangement of his Wolastoq First Nation traditional music. Granted access to the Canadian Museum of History, Jeremy discovered wax cylinders from 1907 of his ancestors singing forgotten songs and stories that had been taken from the Wolastoqiyik Nation generations ago. The album is Jeremy’s contribution to his heritage and community in attempts to revitalize the Wolastoq language to the world, which has less than 100 speakers alive today. This collection of ground breaking post-classical arrangements is truly one of a kind and recalls the mood of Rufus Wainwright's operatic performance or the haunting pop of Anthony & The Johnsons. "

Last year I was excited to discover The Slow Music Movement Radio Show. The show is described as "Lazy Days, Hazy Moments & Dancing to a Slower Groove". Check it out:

Last year I wandered down a rabbit hole when I found out that the origin song for "Solidarity Forever" was the US "Battle Hymn of the Republic", originally "John Brown's Body."
Also, the playgroup I used to go to sang "little Peter Rabbit had a fly upon his nose," to that same tune. You get funny looks from the volunteers when you mix up the words from the different versions.

I love having access to pretty well every type of music all the time but I can see their point.

"Streaming services are essentially gaslighting us that this ecosystem is an amazing new development... that having everything available all the time is a good thing. It isn’t — and it is arguably damaging art and culture as a result."
