Cris Derksen

JUNO-nominated Cris Derksen is an internationally respected Indigenous cellist and composer. Originally from northern Alberta, she comes from a line of chiefs from North Tallcree Reserve on her father’s side and a line of strong Mennonite homesteaders on her mother’s. Derksen weaves her classical background and her Indigenous ancestry together with new school electronics to create genre-defying music.
