Speaking out about politics while tearing up the dancefloor, this Ottawa-based trio knows how to make a statement with their latest full-length, Nation II Nation. Effortlessly blending dubstep and electro beats with pounding rhythms and vocal chanting of First Nations drum groups, A Tribe Called Red creates a dynamic, unique sound that is incomparable. Highlight tracks include "Electric Intertribal" (feat. Smoke Trail) and the enticing "Sisters" (feat. Northern Voice).
A Tribe Called Red can be seen on the second Saturday of every month in the Electric Pow Wow at Ottawa's Babylon nightclub, a night dedicated to showcasing Aboriginal DJs and Native urban culture. Awesome.
