A Tribe Called Red is a collective formed by three Native djs from Ottawa, the two-time Canadian DMC Champion DJ Shub, DJ NDN and video-artist Bear Witness. They have created a signature style known as PowWow Step, a mix of traditional Aboriginal pow-wow drumming and vocals with modern powerful Electronic and Club music. A Tribe Called Red have blown people away with their amazing music videos which are re-appropriating popular culture imagery of Native Culture by flipping around symbols. Onstage, they are doing live remixes of their own tracks, mixed with Pow Wow music, Poetry and Hip-Hop, while the visual aspect completes the performance. Their party mixes are eclectic, smart and will always get the audience going. They have already received big props from FADER, Mad Decent, MTV Iggy, Generation Bass and Masala who have just released their first original single this summer.

truly ground-breaking stuff. coming to new forms festival this september!
