Timeless Rhythm

The Odanak First Nation member is about to release her first solo album, Sweet Tooth. She grew up in Maine, studied jazz at Dartmouth, and has long been part of the indie folk trio Lula Wiles. 

Obomsawim told Vermont Public Radio that Sweet Tooth is a “suite for Indigenous resistance.”

“The album and the compositions tell certain stories. It's all in the Abenaki language,” she added. “It feels like the first authentic statement in my creative journey that comes, like, purely from me, you know, and draws from sort of all the facets of who I am. And, secondly, I guess, you know, to tell the story of my community in a broader way. Our people are still adapting and our cultures are growing and developing in beautiful ways. And that's not a loss ... I just encourage people not to think of Indigenous people doing modern forms of art or existing in a modern way as a loss, you know? There's no loss in that if we're true to who we are.”
