CanadaSound: do you recognize the sounds of Kingston?
What are Canada’s most iconic sounds? What is your favourite Canadian sound? Why? Those are the questions we’re asking you this year, as part of our Canada 150 project called CanadaSound. We’re hoping to create the ultimate Canadian soundmap. Throughout the year, I’ll share some of the country’s most unique and recognizable sounds.
Today: Kingston, Ont.
K-Town is famous as the first capital of Canada, the gateway to the Thousand Islands and home to the Tragically Hip and Don Cherry. Like all Canadian communities, it also has its own distinct set of sounds. Check out the rhythmic video above, submitted by Tyton Sound and Shoreline Productions, and see how many you can name!
Now: what are the distinct Canadian sounds of your town or city? Let us know! You can submit them here.
CBC Music is pleased to support CanadaSound, imagined by cleansheet communications, with partners the Junos, SOCAN, Musicounts, Canadian Heritage, ICI Musique and Adisque.
