Canadian EDM group A Tribe Called Red has hit the ground running this past year. After playing three showcases at SXSW 2013, it is clear that A Tribe Called Red has reached a market beyond the indigenous community. Featuring lead female vocals, pow wow drums, and a beat that turns the tables on how electronic music can be defined, their new album, Nation II Nation, is representative of the emotions, passion, and desired rights of aboriginal communities all over the world. A Tribe Called Red is currently working their way through Europe, and this summer you can catch them on individual tour dates across the USA and Canada. They will also spend their summer touring alongside many reputable DJs and EDM performers at the Mad Decent Block Party that will be making its way across America.
