Music Monday: A Tribe Called Red

Hailing from the nation’s capital Ottawa, Canada, A Tribe Called Red is comprised of Ian “DJ NDN” Campeau, Dan “DJ Shub” General and Bear Witness. These three artists seamlessly mesh electronic music and First Nation’s drumming and vocal chanting.  They released their first self-titled album in 2012 as a free download, click here.  On August 29th, they will have a concert in Ottawa at the Museum of Civilization.  If I can make it, I think I will go check them out.

This is the song that initially caught my attention. The heavy drums along with the powerful vocals are very appealing to me.  The beat really resonates with me and I cannot help but want to get up and dance.  Enjoy!

Here is an interview done by Guillaume Decouflet giving you an insight as to what A Tribe Called Red is about in their own words. *Please excuse some of the language in the video.
