A Tribe Called Red – Live: A Photo Journal

With Special guests Oka and Leonard Sumner

Northcote Social Club 301 High Street, Northcote, Melbourne, Australia

25 November 2015

It was a Wednesday night to remember, Canadian First Nations sensation ‘A Tribe Called Red’ played a powerful set to a packed Melbourne house. Three slamming DJs, the stage alight with colorful projections of pop culture references to challenge absurd stereotypes, and a stunning display of trad meets break dance. The Buffy Sainte-Marie remix was a standout track, as was the Tanya Tagaq jam.

Up-and-coming Anishinaabe artist Leonard Sumner opened the night solo with his distinctive heartfelt melodies and potent poetry. Australia’s OKA played the middle set, pumping up the dance-floor with their signature sound, fusing Yidaki (didgeridoo) with electronic beats and live drums. Here’s a selection of images from one of the greatest shows Melbourne has seen this year.
