Tchutchu

from Onion Lake, SK

If ever you feel disconnected from the people around you, if ever you feel like you’re lost in the darkness: go outside. And bring your camera, or a notebook, drawing supplies, a recording device – whatever instrument compels your art to express itself. Nature, the greatest teacher, is waiting to inspire, comfort and create with you. Davis Whitstone’s deep connection to the healing natural world is surprisingly at home within the dynamic, electronic, musical world created by his alter-ego, Tchutchu. The steady, oddly rhythmic clicks of a cricket became the basis of Contemplations, a grandiose sonic adventure that, at times, also feels like a sparse and moving meditation. A few years into his dream-chasing, music-making explorations, Tchutchu was honoured with a nomination for an Indigenous Music Award for Best Electronic Music Album in 2018 – a career milestone for this Plains Cree, DIY, initially self-taught music lover whose first compositions were made on a laptop found in an abandoned house. A mentor to youth on and off-reserve who want to make electronic music, Tchutchu is helping folks find their tribe through the medicine of music.
