"I Am Woman, Kwe"

Lena Recollet
Country: 
Canada
Genre(s): Spoken Word

National Aboriginal Day 2011 is when Lena released her solo EP "Soul Speaking" at Dundas Square in Toronto. She continued to prepare for her follow up album "I Am Woman, Kwe". Her poetry film "Historical Landmark" premiered at imagineNATIVE Film + Media Festival before she opened for Buffy Sainte Marie after a mentorship with the icon! She was offered the opportunity following a performance with Martha Redbone and Red Slam Collective in 2010.

" Lena Recollet is a talented, driven and vibrant singer/songwriter. Having her perform at imagineNATIVE was amazing - she was fun and energizing to work with off-stage; her on-stage presence was sultry and poetic. Her willingness to push her own limits was inspiring when she welcomed the opportunity to perform unrehearsed and live during Martha Redbone's set - that was definitely my highlight for the night! Lena Recollet's spoken word poetry is bold in its lure and I look forward to hearing more from her! " – Sage Paul, imagineNATIVE Film + Media Festival, 2010.

“I thought of truth… and how we are the legacy of our ancestors”. A write up about her poem “Historical Landmark” was published on page ten in the Ontario Council for International Corporations iAM eMagazine. Vol.3.

“Lena Recollet is one of the most important young artists to emerge from the Native theatre scene today. Her voice is resonant, and her work is haunting!”- Jill Carter, PhD, Lecturer, Aboriginal Studies Department, University of Toronto.

“Personal Power” has been on the playlist of RPM.fm in Vancouver, Indigenouswaves Radio CIUT.fm in Toronto and even made it’s way to Native America Calling, Episode “How Native Is Poetry” and in the hands of Indigenous Foundation, Sante Fe KSFR 101.1 FM.
