In 2008, DJ’s NDN and Bear Witness founded A Tribe Called Red. In 2010, they added two-time Canadian DMC champ, DJ Shub to the crew. Electric Pow Wow is a monthly club night dedicated to showcasing Aboriginal DJ talent and Native urban culture and is aimed at creating a space for Aboriginal people. ATCR creates an eclectic sound made up of a wide variety of musical styles ranging from Hip-Hop, Dance Hall, Electronic, and their own mash-up of club and Pow Wow music, known as Pow Wow Step. You can catch Electric Pow Wow every month on the second Saturday at Babylon nightclub in Ottawa, Canada.
The new album from A Tribe Called Red is called 'Nation II Nation'. The album has been nominated for a Polaris prize. I LOVE the fresh combination of electronic music paired with Native singers and producers. This album is great and I highly recommend checking it out. My personal favorite songs from the album are "Bread & Cheese", "Different Heroes" and "The Road".
Here are streaming clips of all the songs on the album:
