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!

About the Artist  

Marcel Russ was born and raised in Old Massett, Haida Gwaii and is from the Raven Clan of the Haida Nation. Major influences in his life have been the culture, lifestyle and the values of his people.

Being raised with the influences of native heritage helped to shape his unique world view, values and beliefs. Artisans who influenced him from an early age include his late grandfather (Chief Reynold Russ), his father Ron Russ (master carver of argillite and wood) and his uncle Chris Russ (also a Haida artist).

The Russ family are well-known argillite carvers of the Haida Nation and have been featured in many museums and galleries, as well documented in native art book collections. In addition to design, Marcel likes to carve intricate designs of argillite, gold, silver and wood. 

Marcel’s art always encompasses a story. Consider yourself fortunate to own a piece of his work!
