Melody McKiver with Mas Aya - Ziigwan

Closing out this year's X Avant festival, Lido Pimienta turned her headlining set inside-out, giving stage time over to friends and collaborators who performed in various combinations. Anishinaabe violist Melody McKiver, for example, would show up during the set-capping all-in throwdown, but also played their own material, including a solo piece as well as a collaboration with clarinetist Robert Drisdelle. They led off with this, joined by Mas Aya's Brandon Valdivia as he wound up a mini solo set of his own.

* Thanks to Melody for passing the title to this one along!
