TUNE A Tribe Called Red - R.E.D.
A Tribe Called Red release ‘R.E.D.’ on 11th November, featuring Yasiin Bey (AKA Mos Def), Canadian-Iraqi MC Narcy and Black Bear (a drum group from the Manawan Atiikamekw Nation in Quebec). The track is taken from new album ‘We Are The Halluci Nation’ (out now) and is released via Radicalized Records.
From First Nations origins, Bear Witness, 2oolman and DJ NDN are A Tribe Called Red. The three producers are creating a sonic identity for a new generation by bridging traditional Pow Wow music and contemporary dance music.
ATCR garnered mainstream attention when they became the first Indigenous group to win the Breakthrough Group of the Year award at the Juno Awards (Canada's Grammys). Previously they were long-listed for Canada's prestigious Polaris Music Prize in 2012 and 2013. They've performed at Coachella, Bonnaroo, New Orleans Jazz Fest and have toured across Australia, Europe, Mexico and the US. Also, they recently had a sync on Netflix series Narcos.
‘We Are The Halluci Nation’ is out now and included features by: Yasiin Bey (AKA Mos Def), Saul Williams, Tanya Tagaq, John Trudell, Maxida Marak, Shad & more.
“A Tribe Called Red are a force to be reckoned with. New album ‘We Are The Halluci Nation’ is an international, intra-continental blast of electronic futurism, backed by ferocious, socially conscious rhymes and some stellar guests.” Clash
