Ottawa’s A Tribe Called Red is embarking on a North American tour with a stop at Calgary’s Flames Central on Friday, November 25.
The producer/DJ crew has been producing a truly eclectic sound that’s impacting the global electronic scene and urban club culture. Since 2010 the group – currently made up of DJ NDN, Bear Witness and 2oolman – has been mixing traditional pow wow vocals and drumming with cutting-edge electronic music. Their tour this winter follows the crew’s second full-length album Nation II Nation, which came out in May.
A Tribe Called Red has been making waves since their self-titled album back in March 2012. The Indigenous producers have created a soundtrack to a contemporary evolution of the pow wow, with their Electric Pow Wow events in Ottawa showcasing aboriginal talent and culture. They have become the face of an urban Indigenous youth resistance, and speak out on aboriginal issues, all while being icons in music, fashion and art.
Their latest album was nominated on the shortlist of the Polaris Music Prize as one of the 10 best Canadian album of the year and 4 APCMAs (Aboriginal Peoples Choice Music Award) for best group, best producer, best album and best cover art.
