Video Title:
Asani - "O, Canada" (Rendition) [Live at Smithsonian Folklife Festival 2006]
Description:
"O, Canada," the Canadian national anthem, was originally written in French in 1880, and the English version was chosen as the country's official anthem in 1980. Here Asani, an Aboriginal women's a cappella group from Alberta, Canada, present a stirring rendition of "O, Canada" at the 2006 Smithsonian Folklife Festival. This version is reimagined to reflect the myriad peoples who call Canada their homeland. Hear more music from Canada on the 1962 album 'Marie Hare of Strathadam, New Brunswick, Canada,' available on CD and digital.
