When They Awake is a vibrant celebration of a remarkable generation of Indigenous musicians across North America, at a watershed moment of social, cultural, and political resurgence. Picking up the story where 'Rumble' left it, and with intimate access to key players, from Nunavut throat-singer Tanya Tagaq to EDM outfit A Tribe Called Red, and from legendary songstress-activist Buffy Sainte-Marie to uncompromising singer-songwriter Iskwe, When They Awake is an empowering sonic engine about a musical and social revolution happening right before our eyes.
