This past summer, A Tribe Called Red added “The Rez Tour” in the midst of their festival season dates, bringing a handful of free shows to communities in Ontario. This week they dropped a new video about the experience.
A Tribe Called Red‘s live show is potent, powerful, and always packed. They have performed for huge crowds around the world, and in summer 2016, finally brought their work to “the audience that matters to them most.”
“Our main goal was to be able to connect with our fans that we don’t get to connect with face to face so much, particularly our fan-base on reservation who maybe aren’t getting to our larger shows,” says Bear in the good-looking 5 minute video directed by Jon Riera. Deejay NDN adds, “It’s important to go to Indigenous youth now and show that we’re real, that we’re real people and we’re accessible to these youth.”
The tour included workshops, q&a with the band, and plenty of photo ops in addition to their high powered performances. It’s great to get the insight into The Rez Tour and we hope there are more tours like it to come! As one fan states, “Thank you guys for bringing everyone together.”
