Akua Tuta

Akua Tuta is the third album by Canadian folk rock duo Kashtin, released in 1994.[1] Akua Tuta was the final album released by the band under the name Kashtin, although band members Claude McKenzie and Florent Vollant have each continued to record as solo artists.

The album was a shortlisted nominee for the Juno Award for Best Music of Aboriginal Canada Recording at the Juno Awards of 1995.

The title track was selected by Robbie Robertson for inclusion on his television soundtrack Music for The Native Americans, and was also used on Due South in the episode "Hawk and a Handsaw".
