"Wabanag's music is best described as a mix of traditional Native American/Canadian Aboriginal music and contemporary styles. The onstage storytelling skills of Nagwetch are truly mesmerizing, as his tales awaken the imagination. I recommend experiencing  a live performance of the band. It  won't soon be forgotten! ".
