How do you celebrate winning a Juno for Best Breakthrough Group? You dish out a new video! That’s what A Tribe Called Red has done at least. They’ve delivered some visuals for the track “Sisters” from their 2013 record Nation II Nation and they want to turn your average day into a dance party.
Here’s what the trio had to say about the video:
“For the Sisters video, we wanted to show that Native Americans are like everyone else, regular contemporary people who are connected, fashion conscious and going to the club on weekends. Starring Kawennáhere Devery Jacobs, Sisters shows three aboriginal girlfriends going on a road trip to our monthly party Electric Pow Wow in Ottawa, one of the only all indigenous parties in North America. We wanted the simplicity of the story to enhance this message and shines a light on this all-Native crew. The song is taken from our latest album Nation II Nation and exclusively uses the female vocals of PowWow group Northern Voice. This is also groundbreaking as female PowWow backvocals haven’t been put at the forefront like this ever before.”
Take a look at the video below.
