In a segment that we call the q Thursday Headliner, we invite a band or artist we think you need to hear to kick off the show with a live performance. This week, iskwē drops by the q studio to perform some new songs from her latest album, acākosīk — a deeply personal record that fuses Indigenous sounds and music with electropop.

You can catch iskwē performing at the Mod Club in Toronto on Friday, Jan. 17.
