New Indigenous Music Releases – March 2012 By:

There’s new music being made every moment, and here are the three newest releases from Indigenous artists for the month of March!

The debut full-length album from A Tribe Called Red has been long awaited and much anticipated to say the least. Released this week as a free download, the purveyors of “pow wow step” flex their creativity through the diverse musical landscapes of hip-hop, dancehall, moombahton and electronic styles.

This month saw another debut from newcomer Ali Baby - who RPM profiled last month in DJ DoezIt and Ali Baby: Native Rap in High School Hallways. As Mixed Breed, Ali Baby with Chino, Annalex and Lil Shugz, have released The Beginning a mix of rap, r&b, hip-hop, rock and country. It is also a free download! Go get it here: facebook.com/mixedbreedmusic.

Last but not least, a very exciting release from Delmore Recordings is a recently unearthed recording by Karen Dalton. 1966  features Karen solo on banjo and guitar, plus four duets with Richard Tucker. The recordings are intimate, unfiltered and stirring. You can get 1966 digitally, on CD or vinyl at delmorerecordings.com.

VIDEO: Supaman – “Gorilla” | By:  

A member of the Apsaalooke Nation who makes his home on the Crow Agency reserve in Montana, Supaman released a new video last week for the first single off his upcoming album Digital Grease.

Supaman is quite an interesting artist. His early work fell into describing and subscribing to the struggle and more negative aspects of hip-hop culture. But while signed to a Seattle label and on tour, he had a breakdown and subsequent epiphany that lead him to leave the label and return to the reserve. There he began to write a new message into his work with a focus and dedication to providing his community, and youth in particular, with a positive message.

From NPR, Supaman: Rapping On The Reservation:

“Native Americans grasp that culture of hip-hop because of the struggle,” he says. “Hip-hop was talking about the ghetto life, poverty, crime, drugs, alcohol, teen pregnancy; all that crazy stuff that happens in the ghetto is similar to the reservation life. We can relate to that”…
