The Haida Gwaii OM Tee this Weekend in Tlell!

Zachary Forbes AKA Waspy of Dirty Radio wears Crystal Cabin's Haida Gwaii OM Tee by Haida Artist, Marcel Russ at this weekend's 2017 Edge of the World Music Festival in Tlell, Haida Gwaii!

A crowd favourite, Dirty Radio, had an amazing performance on Friday and Saturday of this weekend's Edge of the World Music Festival! Possibly the smallest Music Fest in B.C. - EOTW does not disappoint with an amazing selection of artists in one of the most magical places on the planet - the islands of Haida Gwaii, Canada.

We really enjoyed Dirty Radio's heart pumping and danceable beats - and on behalf of Haida Gwaiians are asking, when's the next show guys? ;)

Even more amazing than Saturday morning's south eastern storm clearing to calm skies for Saturday night's high-energy dance party, Zachary Forbes AKA Waspy (1/3 of Dirty Radio) stripped down to wear Crystal Cabin's Haida Gwaii OM Tee on stage! OMg! 

At that exact moment, somehow all of our camera and phone batteries died in unison! Forcing us to seek our our good friend and photographer extraordinaire, Patrick Shannon from Innonative.ca, to snap the below photo and video direct from his iPhone!

Thank you Waspy and Dirty Radio for making our night! You're our TRUE LOVE!

Behind the Haida Gwaii OM Design

The Haida Gwaii OM fuses the supernatural energy of Haida art and culture with the OM, a sacred sound and spiritual concept in Hinduism, symbolizing universe, creation and energy. 

Marcel Russ of the Haida Nation designed the Haida Gwaii OM, which features the Haida motifs: Raven, Eagle, Killer Whale, and Frog, especially for Crystal Cabin.

This design is available in mens and womens tanks and tees, as well as fine art prints! 

Photo & Video Recap of Crystal Cabin's Tlell Stone Circle 15-Year Celebration!

On June 10, 2017, Crystal Cabin celebrated 15-Years of the Tlell Stone Circle. Sixty locals and visitors attended the event, which kicked-off with a morning meditation in the Tlell Stone Circle led by Firyal Mohamed. Later in the day, guests heard from the creator of the Tlell Stone Circle, Dutes Dutheil and Neil Blacklock, who presented on why Haida Gwaii is home to one of the world's most powerful energy vortexes.

Guests also learned how to identify an energy point in the Tlell Stone Circle using Copper Dowsing Rods. A seasonal Lilac and Wild Mint punch by Faustine des Rosiers was served, along with lemon, chocolate and coconut Tlell Stone Circle cakes by Alex Rinfret. The Tlell Stone Circle, which explores Haida Gwaii's geological story, exhibits eight local specimens arranged in a traditional medicine wheel. The Circle was built in 2002 by Dutes and has been enjoyed by all who visit. 

Here are a few photos from the day!
