I think it's safe to say that CBC officially love A Tribe Called Red. The Spark, All In A Day, Wab Kinew on 8th Fire repping our t-shirt...the CBC team definitely knows a good thing when they hear it. As a matter of fact just the other week they invited Bear Witness into the studio on Spark with Nora Young it's a pretty killer interview and you can listen to it hear if you want...trust me you want.
- BEAR WITNESS ON SPARK CBC MARCH 2 2012. -
CBC has just taken it a step further and are going to be hosting Beat Tradition, a musical showcase in part with the 8th Fire programming that has been getting a crazy amount of attention for it's look at Canada's relationship with Aboriginal People's. Get this, next Wednesday A Tribe Called Red will be taking over the NAC 4th Stage with three other musical acts. 2010 Juno Award Winners Digging Roots, DAYBI a Cree hip hop artist from Montreal and 2012 Juno Nominees Rise Ashen And Falling Down Thunder. The night will be hosted by one of my favorite on air personalities, Alan Neal as well as Waubgeshig Rice from CBC News Ottawa. As if that's not enough the entire program will be recorded and featured on CBC Radio 1's Bandwidth the following Sunday as well as on CBC Radio 2's Canada Live.
CBC has been always supported us and we are excited to be bringing you this special night at a unique venue with many special guests.
Did I mention that tickets are free? This can only mean that they will be going fast and you have to reserve your ticket if you want to go so please hurry and go to the following link so you don't miss your chance to be a part of this brilliant showcase.

Last Saturday we held it down at Babylon the way we do the first Saturday of every month at Electric Pow Wow and this time we had Deejay Creeasian in tow and man what a honor it was. Not only is this guy a Red Bull Thre3Style semi finalist (for now), and a wicked Bboy but he is also doing some big things for Canada's Northern and inner city communities. You see, Creeasian is a part of Blueprint For Life, a wicked cool program that offers culturally rooted outreach using Hip Hop as a community development tool. It is a program that has garnered country wide recognition from a collective of deejays and breakers that are keen on finding a modern, relatable way to connect with those who are in need of a fresh way to learn about their culture and connect with the community they live in.
|yup, we love that guy.|
The opportunity to share the stage with this guy and introduce him to our EPW crowd in Ottawa was a good one at that and we will without a doubt be seeing more of this guy, hopefully sooner than later. If you want to check out the Blueprint For Life team and know a bit more about the cool stuff they are up to check out their WEBSITE!

|Just so happy all the time...EPW does that, its inevitable|
I don't even know what to say at this point, if you were there on Saturday or if you have been out to Electric Pow Wow with us before, you know what it was all about. The place was packed, the dance floor was sweaty, all of our friends were there, just another amazing night with A Tribe Called Red. It's what we do...
If you're reading this and you are also on that twitter thing get your priorities straight already and follow the ATCR fam and friends...@theBEARwitness @deejayNDN @djShub @creeasian @littlegirlrage @FallDownGallery
