Nadjiwan will be releasing a new album in Thunder Bay’s Marina Park next week.

The man behind the music of Nadjiwan, Marc Merilainen, will be featured at Live on the Waterfront on Wednesday.

“I am really looking forward to making a return to my home town of Thunder Bay and very excited to release the latest studio album by Nadjiwan titled Superposition on Wednesday, July 26, at our show,” said Merilainen, in a news release from the City of Thunder Bay on Friday.

“Thunder Bay is where I started this project and it seems like the perfect venue to release this exciting new album. In fact, a song of this new record was recorded here in Thunder Bay and co-written with the multi-talented Jean-Paul De Roover.”

Merilainen was born in northern Manitoba and raised in Northwestern Ontario. He is a member of the Chippewas of Nawash First Nation and knew from an early age that he would perform music. He has achieved much success in both Canada and the United States. He is fresh off his latest performance at the North American Indigenous Games in Toronto.

Robin Ranger, a jazz composer and musician from Fort William First Nation, and Jean-Paul De Roover, who constructs his songs piece by piece before your eyes, will also perform Wednesday evening.

Live on the Waterfront runs from 6-9 p.m. every Wednesday, from July 12 to Aug. 30.
