[Long Description: A poster from the Canyon F/Hall Music Festival, held annually in North Mountain. It depicts a frantic collaborative performance featuring the old folk heroes, Dai Hei and Sadren, and some members of the younger generation, Brun Nakamura and Sinuk Vauntariaq.
Hei shreds on a ruan-like instrument in the foreground. He’s shirtless, showing off a bare chest that’s almost as brawny as it is fuzzy. It seems like they got him to wear pants for this performance, at least. He also wears a traditional mask styled after a boondog, an animal that’s sort of like a cross between a dog and a mandrill. The mask is burnt black and snarling, with a chipped ear and missing fangs.
Sinuk is on her knees in the middle ground. She’s a scrappy, lanky woman with cropped black hair and an aquiline nose. All across her face are shrapnel and acne scars. She bends backwards so far that her head touches the stage floor, belting into the microphone that she’s brought down with her.
Brun whales on a taiko drum in the background. She’s short and stocky, wearing a flannel t-shirt with a huge leather coat tied around her waist. Her eyes are covered by her black bangs, and she wears her short hair up in a shitty little ponytail. She’s having a great time.
Sadren is in the background, behind the drum. He’s a tall, gangly man with a gaunt profile and very long black hair, which he wears in a high ponytail. The upper half of his face is covered with red paint, and he wears a sooty grey and red shawl. He holds a mic vertically, not unlike the hilt of a sword, and backs up Sinuk as her fellow vocalist.]
