A Tribe Called Red offers music to challenge stereotypes
CANADIAN music troupe A Tribe Called Red will be heading to Lismore to perform for the first time, as part of an extensive run of shows throughout the east-coast.
A Tribe Called Red is made up by DJ NDN, Bear Witness and 2oolman.
The group aims to challenge stereotypes about indigenous people by using video segments taken from pop culture (movies, cartoons) in order to poke fun of the racist imagery.
They not only mix tradition with contemporary art via music and video, but also their dancer, who mixes b-boy style with traditional hoop dancing.
The JUNO-award winning Canadian collaborative, featuring native Producer/DJ crew, are famous for their experimental blend of instrumental hip-hop, reggae, electronic music and elements of First Nations traditional drumming and chanting.
They produce their own sound that's impacting the global electronic scene and urban club culture.
Their self-titled album, released in March 2012, was long-listed for Canada's prestigious Polaris Music Prize and included in the Washington Post's top 10 albums of the year.
At Lismore City Hall on Saturday, November 28, from 8.30pm. $32.20.
