You cannot redeem punch passes for this performance.
About NÀHGĄ NÀHGĄ creates an enveloping atmosphere with his live performances. He strives to reclaim his culture through music and art; inspired by technology, language, politics, economy, and northern legends. “NÀHGĄ” is the Tlicho/Dogrib word for “bushman”, which is known in legend as the spirit of the woods in the NWT. The beaded eye-cover that is worn is a visual representation of the obscurity and mystery of what this spirit is, and also to pay respect to our traditional artists and craft-makers with a sci-fi influence. Casey Koyczan is also an installation artist, actor, and creates audio for video-games, scores, and films. In his spare time he works with various local organizations on multi-media projects, and creates music videos and short music documentaries.
