The Halluci Nation A Spotlight On Music Innovation
The month of November is Native American Heritage Month.
According to Native American Heritage Month.gov in 1990 President George H.W. Bush approved a joint resolution designating November as Native American Heritage Month.
Throughout November, I’ll be posting articles centered around Indigenous content. In this article, I’ll be introducing you to the Halluci Nation.
Formerly named a Tribe Called Red, the Canadian DJ duo of 2oolman and Bear Witness began creating music together in 2008 after a club night working in a genre called Electric Pow Wow.
Electric Pow Wow includes the elements of drum circle music and mixing it with electronic elements.
They released their first album A Tribe Called Red in 2012 followed by Nation 2 Nation in 2013. Following their name change to the Halluci Nation, they released We Are The Halluci Nation in 2016 and their latest One More Saturday Night in 2021.
According to the Halluci Nation’s website, the Halluci Nation takes its name “From a phrase coined by John Trudell. The Halluci Nation describes the vast global community of people who remember at their core what it means to be human.”
The Halluci Nation is currently on tour. You can follow them here.
