Tribal-Live in SA, 2005


Feeling a bit camera shy


TRIBAL, a Native folk band from the Shuswap Nation, blends funk, jazz, fusion, and folk music. Their unique style of traditional and not-so- traditional rhythms produce a sound that is distinctive, fresh, and mesmerizing.

“…I am truly astonished; the bass is right up there with “Rush”, and “Yes”. I never heard such genuine talent!!”

~Randy/Vision Productions, December 2004

TRIBAL is influenced by such bands as Johnny Lee Hooker, Primus, The Doors, Victor Wooten, Bele Fleck and the Flecktones, Jimi Hendrix, and Canned Heat to name a few; as well as classic, alternative, and progressive rock artists such as Dave Matthews Band, Ben Harper and Traditional Pow Wow music.

The hypnotizing guitar seems to converse with the band like an ancient soul language that has been lost for many years.

TRIBAL has recorded one CD: 2004's Live in SA, which contains two super grooves “Voyage to Pluto” and “Hear my train coming”. TRIBAL has enjoyed great success over the past years with their self-proclaimed "Super Funk" sounds. They have performed at festivals, clubs, coffee houses, and benefits throughout southern BC, and are looking forward to their first European tour. They also appeared as special guests for the Salmon Arm Roots and blues volunteer party.

TRIBAL members have played with a variety of artists such as Johnny Lee Hooker, Les Batinses, The Quebec Fiddlers, John Ferrera, Aaron Anderson of the Buddy Miles Band and Juno award winner, Richard Underhill.
