Native Electronica

Check out this video for a track called "Pow Wow Riddim." It's from a Native electronic music crew called A Tribe Called Red:

Pow Wow Riddim from Bear Witness on Vimeo.



Their website is here and non-video versions of the tracks they've released so far can be found here. I heard of them from this piece by writer and activist Jessica Yee, who describes them as "some amazing Native peeps that are taking de-bunking Indigenous stereotypes to a whole new level – via music, dance, electric beats, hip-hop, and mind-blowing remixes to decolonize you all over – especially in those hard to reach places."

(Please note that I've made a number of edits to this since I first posted it, but it should be in stable shape now.)
