New track by Ottawa Electric Powwow speaker-pounders A Tribe Called Red was released this week on SoundCloud entitled PowWowzers which features drum group Northern Cree and Ojibwe funny man Clarence Two Toes.
After reaching 60,000 hits on their Soundcloud page, A Tribe Called Red celebrated by releasing a new track that features world champion drum group Northern Cree and a sample of the super funny Clarence Two Toes, giving us another dance floor shaker to move to.
The trio have embarked on a Canada-wide tour with comedian Ryan McMahon this week and are set to hit up several cities and communities along the way. Their use of powwow samples and hard hitting dance rhythms have been doing them well, allowing them to perform at various festivals around the world and to gain recognition from top music blogs and producers.
This new style of dance music is geared to be booming through speakers for a long time, making sure that getting the crowd moving remains the foundation of this group’s success and letting us know that Indigenous music is on the rise in more areas than just country and rap. Their live shows are something of legend and are true to the reputation of getting people out of their seats and onto the dance floor.
RPM had the opportunity to present a performance with A Tribe Called Red and Ryan McMahon here in Vancouver, BC. Be on the lookout for a breakdown of the show and also an exclusive interview with the new Chiefs of the Electric Powwow!
