    Ummm so this is ok, but a First Nation woman throat singing is cultural appropriation? In a CBC article, Lambe states it is rap, which is traced back centuries to West Africa set to Fist Nations drums….so please someone explain the difference., as I am truly confused. II will say the song sounds very cool and I don’t even like rap. But still why is one cultural appropriation and the other not? Would like to hear from those who backed out of the IMAs, as they seem to be the experts.
