A Tribe Called Red Concert at Williwaw
First Alaskans Institute (FAI) is pleased to announce that we are bringing A Tribe Called Red (ATCR), an indigenous DJ group known for their dance tracks that blend indigenous music with dub-step, hip hop, reggae, and electronica back to Alaska!
The VIP pre-concert reception will begin at 8PM at Williwaw in Anchorage on Friday, October 20, 2017. The benefit concert will begin at 9PM with an opening performance from internationally renowned Inuit Funk music group Pamyua.
This performance takes place during the week we affectionately call "Native New Year", the week of the 34th Annual FAI Elders & Youth Conference and 51st Annual AFN Convention the two largest gatherings of Alaska Native peoples in Alaska each year. All proceeds will support the work of FAI, a statewide Alaska Native non-profit organization working to advance our vision of "Progress for the next 10,000 years..."
This marks the second time ATCR will perform to support the work of FAI and celebrate Alaskas first peoples. The music of ATCR dubbed powwow-step in reference to their fusion of contemporary powwow, other indigenous music, and electronic dance genres showcases messages of decolonization, social justice, and advocacy for the advancement of indigenous peoples, communities and cultures across the globe. In 2017, ATCR received the Album of the Year Award from the Candadian Independent Music Awards, were nominated for two Juno Awards, one for Electronic Album of the Year and Video of the Year for their third album titled We Are The Halluci Nation. The group also received Video of the Year for R.E.D. by iHeartRadio Much Music Video Awards.
