Q&A with Bear Witness of A Tribe Called Red on touring and music





DJ Bear Witness of A Tribe Called Red talks about the group's growing popularity:
Q: What does your touring schedule looking like these days?

A: We’ve been on tour since April, back and forth across Canada seven or eight times, and did an extensive tour in the States where we went pretty much everywhere, except for the middle.

We were just in Boston the other night, going to Saskatoon tomorrow, Quebec City a couple nights later and a few weeks after that we’ll be in Mexico.

Q: What’s that been like for you guys? Is this worldwide touring a new development?

A: This level of touring is definitely new for us. We have never toured this extensively for this long.

Q: Do you find that your music is received as well outside of North America?

A: In the U.S. we’ve definitely been doing really well and we’re building it in Europe. It’s a little further removed over there so it takes more time, but I have a feeling that the next trip to Europe is going to be a lot different from our first two.
