A re-issue of the rare, legendary and long out-of-print album recorded by First Nations and Canadian cultural icon Alanis Obomsawin in the mid-1980s. Remastered from the original analog tapes, newly pressed on audiophile 180gram vinyl _ and on CD for the first time. Bush Lady is the only record ever made by Obomsawin, rising to cult status in recent years, while Obomsawin has meanwhile received Canada's highest accolades for her 50-year career as an activist documentary fillmmaker, including the Order Of Canada. Bush Lady is a unique and magical record by any definition. It's an invaluable example of contemporary First Nations music that blends traditional folkways with avant-garde composition. Amidst the broader and long-overdue resurgence of interest in modern Indigenous music - perhaps most notably culminating with the Grammynominated Native North America (Vol. 1) 3xLP set released in 2014 (to which Obomsawin also notably declined to contribute, owing to her deep and warranted skepticism about the music industry) - Constellation is honoured to be working with this Canadian cultural icon. RIYL: Native North America (Vol. 1), Joni Mitchell, Meredith Monk, Tim Buckley, Laurie Anderson, Judy Collins, Nico, Buffy St Marie.
