Bannock Boogie! Come eat bannock!

artnapoleon_mocikanA great shot of energy from Art Napoleon and friends – and a probable theme song for Winnipeg’s Althea “Got Bannock?” Guiboche, celebrating her First Anniversary serving bannock to the homeless on the cold streets of Winnipeg.

Art’s dialect is Bush Cree from BC, a y-dialect that often uses î instead of ê, but this blues jam is universal! I’d be thrilled to add lyrics in SRO – but first I’ll have to sit down and stop dancing.

The album includes more great tunes and lessons in Cree for kids. You can find the whole album on iTunes: https://itunes.apple.com/ca/album/mocikan/id274522625
