The Ottawa-based Indigenous DJ collective A Tribe Called Red has been creating an eclectic sound incorporating a wide variety of musical styles ranging from hip-hop, dancehall, electronica and dubstep, to their own mash-ups of club and Pow Wow music since 2008.
Bear Witness, DeeJay Shub and DeeJay NDN combine to make a unique brand of auditory madness that they’ve appropriately dubbed ‘electric pow wow’ or ‘pow wow step’.
Their bi-monthly club night Electric Pow Wow, started in 2010, has been hugely successful.
We LOVE this remix of the classic Northern Cree song “Red Skin Girl“.
