Mimi O’Bonsawin, Abenaki/Francophone, is a long returning guest to Gaënö’. Whether talking about culture or the land, hers is a story of reconnection. Throughout the years, her musics been featured in TV and film, including APTN’s Mohawk Girls and Showtimes Ray Donovan. In 2019 she won the Best Pop Album award at the Indigenous Music Awards. 2023 has already been a huge year for her. On March 3, she released her album, Willow, she got married, played her first shows in Ireland and is releasing another album later this year. This week Mimi joins me to discuss all this and so much more. Enjoy!
