An established Mi’kmaq artist, Alan Syliboy’s work is influenced by the indigenous Mi’kmaq rock drawing, and quill weaving traditions. Working in acrylic and mixed media, Alan creates vibrantly coloured images exploring the themes of family, searching, spirituality, struggle, and strength. The use of layering symbols and mark making creates depth and texture in Alan’s work.
The members of the group are vocalist Hubert Francis star of Brookes Diamond production, “Drum” from Elsipogtog First Nation, Evan Syliboy formerly with Lonecloud and bassist/composer/sound designer & sound editor Lukas Pearce of Halifax NS and group leader, percussionist/storyteller Alan Syliboy. The show consists of songs, stories (narrative about The Thundermaker) accompanied by multi-media art film and live performance.
