M’Girl [pronounced ma-girl], an Aboriginal Women’s Ensemble is: Renae Morriseau, Sheila Maracle and Cheryl L’Hirondelle.
M’Girl’s harmonies incorporate the sounds of R&B, blues, folk/roots, house and world beat with traditional Aboriginal melodic phrasing, songforms and rhythms. Though officially performing together now for over three years, their personal artistic and musical histories spans throughout each of their lives – they were so born to do this! The message in the music is an emergence of cultural ideals and worldviews from the perspectives of their Metis/Cree (Nêhiyawin), Ojibway and Mohawk backgrounds.
