Tune in on Monday, September 2nd @ 4PM to hear DJ Velvet Einstein’s recent talk with electronic Canadian DJ collective, A Tribe Called Red. Together they discuss collaborating with John Trudell, being born in activism, respecting ones own culture, and making sure everyone has a great time at the same time.
Looking to the future, without losing sight of their past, ATCR straddles a broad range of musical influences based in modern hip-hop, traditional pow wow drums and vocals, blended with edgy electronic music production styles. Currently made up of Bear Witness and 2oolman, ATCR first got together in 2008. They are part of a vital new generation of artists making a cultural and social impact in Canada alongside a renewed Aboriginal rights movement called Idle No More.
A Tribe Called Red promotes inclusivity, empathy and acceptance amongst all races and genders in the name of social justice. They believe that indigenous people need to define their identity on their own terms.
