Canadian electro pop group A Tribe Called Red’s ‘Sisters‘ (feat. Northern Voice) is one of the stellar dance tracks on the third season of the animated Netflix series Kipo and the Age of Wonderbeasts this month — Kipo and the Age of Wonderbeasts, Season 3, Episode 3, “A Wolf in Wolf’s Clothing“.
The banging song was played in episode three as Wolf starts to fight with Margot, a wolf he had a problem with more than five years ago.
A Tribe Called Red is a predominantly instrumental group that mixes hip hop, reggae, moombahton and dubstep-influenced dance music with chanting and drumming from traditional First Nations music.
The track ‘Sisters’ is from the electronic music group’s second studio album Nation II Nation.
Released in 2013, the 10-track album also featured collaborations with other First Nations artists including Black Bear, Sitting Bear, Chippewa Travellers and the afore-mentioned group Northern Voice.
The album was eventually nominated for a Polaris Prize; the second of A Tribe Called Red’s albums to be nominated for the prestigious award. (article cont. below)
Listen to A Tribe Called Red’s ‘Sisters’ in the song’s official music video.
The video follows three gorgeous sisters as they drive around, go to a convenience store, dance at a bar and generally have fun. All to the beats of what, to this non-indigenous ear, sounds like one of the best powwow rhythms ever.
It ends with the girls at a night club dancing to the live group on stage — A Tribe Called Red, of course.
Watch the third and final season of the hit series Kipo and the Age of Wonderbeasts now streaming on Netflix and listen to that awesome song again on that.
