The JUNO Awards stage is a hallowed place where Canadian music legends mix with rising stars -- and this year’s show in Ottawa was no different. The legendary Buffy Sainte-Marie kicked off the night by introducing Ottawa’s own A Tribe Called Red who were joined by Inuk throat singer Tanya Tagaq. The performances that followed, although musically diverse, paid a similar homage to Canada’s musical past and promising future, from Leslie Feist performing a stunning tribute to Leonard Cohen to cheeky rockers Arkells singing a song about… well… Drake’s Dad.
When looking at the top searched performances from last night’s show, it’s evident that Canadian musical taste also balances the classics with the contemporary.
