Immerse yourself in Indigenous music with KFPL and local artists in September

September 14, 2023

Learn about the history, uses and craftsmanship behind Indigenous musical instruments! David Finkle,
an acclaimed multi-instrumentalist from Tyendinaga Mohawk Territory, promises an unforgettable
musical experience during an upcoming online program with Kingston Frontenac Public Library (KFPL),
exploring musical instruments both past and present.

In a world where music transcends boundaries and cultures, Turtle Island Indigenous Music Throughout
the Ages promises to be an exciting experience for anyone interested in Indigenous music, cultural
events and integrating instruments into media like theatre and film.

“Cultural storytelling through music is a universal language that David Finkle speaks fluently,” said Jake
Miller, Librarian, Adult Programming. “This session offers a unique opportunity for all of us to learn,
respect, and celebrate the diverse musical traditions that enrich our world and to appreciate the
instruments that make it all possible.”

The program is scheduled for September 28 at 6 p.m. and will be conducted via Zoom. Registration is
