Nootka Sounds was created in 2017 as a portal for artistic expression & education for folks in the Nootka Sound area of British Columbia and around the world. The community of Tahsis is the leading inspiration for the label’s inception, which itself has been built and maintained under a series of curious circumstances. Whereas this area was once a thriving hot-bed of Nations, colonialism killed the lives once lived. Whereas there was once thousands of folks living here, now there rest just a couple hundred of the most curious of people. The relative peace & quiet that this place now experiences with the death of the forests is alluring to those who prefer keeping to a clean atmosphere; the order brings into fruition the images that the land helps hold steady in the mind’s eye of the creators.
