Ottawa-based Aboriginal DJ group, A Tribe Called Red, released their debut alum for FREE today! The best way I can describe their sound is a modern, electronic remix of traditional Native pow wow drumming and singing. Whatever you want to call it, you can’t deny how incredibly awesome and talented these guys are. Some of my favorite tracks include: “Native Puppy Love,” “Woodcarver,” “Red Skin Girl,” and “Look At This.” All the tracks are good, though. But, don’t take my word for it, go check it out for yourself! Download the album here…and be sure to spread the word!
Here’s a piece I did about A Tribe Called Red’s music and their “Electric Pow Wow” while visiting Toronto last year for ImagineNative. Enjoy!
