Earlier this week A Tribe Called Red debuted their brand new video for Indian City featuring Black Bear with FADER. The video comes as the latest visual installment from their critically acclaimed album We Are The Halluci Nation.
We Are The Halluci Nation has hit #1 on iTunes Canada Top 200, #1 on Earshot! And #2 on the iTunes USA Top 200 Electronic chart. The album features appearances from industry heavyweights like Yasiin Bey, Saul Williams, Tanya Tagaq, Shad, Lido Pimienta, Leonard Sumner and more.
The video, which you can watch below, was shot in Toronto and created with the support of the Canada Council for the Arts and Sesqui.
“Like many movements, the Halluci Nation grew from a place of necessity. Long before we fought in the streets, our first battles were fought on the dance floor. Some of us have learned about our culture from birth, being taught to sing, drum and dance like we were being shown to speak and walk. Some of us have found our way first through beats, breaking and turntablism, only to find it leading us back to our roots. The movement carries memories and the drums are kept deep in our chests, no matter how hard they tried to rip them out. So, we learned to dance on these city streets and write our songs on digital drums.” – Oral History of the Halluci Nation

Connect with A Tribe Called Red:
Born and raised in MTL, I spent most of my teens and early 20’s working in the music industry. I made the permanent move to Toronto in 2013 where I joined the team at the Canadian Independent Music Association as the Music Export Assistant. I spend my days working with and promoting incredible indie Canadian artists and companies across the world.
Music journalism and photography have been a huge part of my life for as long as I can remember, as I jumped on board Confront Magazine a few years after it formed and ran it as the Editor-in-Chief for 7 years, right up until its recent closure.
I love to spend my spare time running to and from concerts, cheering on my hockey team (Go Habs!) and getting lost in nature whenever I can.
