The Afro-Latino funk rock band, led by guitarist Michael Sanders, took its thoughtful and provocative glimpse into the American soul and life of Angelenos to the next level as they performed â€œItâ€™s Timeâ€ during the now ubiquitous Occupy Wall Street movement on October 23rd, 2011 at the Los Angeles City Hall. Renowned video and film maker Leonardo Bondani – whose body of work includes MalditaVecindad, Tijuana No, Kid Frost, and El Vuh just to name a few – recorded a video of One Tribe Nationâ€™s â€œItâ€™s Timeâ€.
â€œWe wanted to make music with substance that is relevant and inspirational to the listener,â€ says Quetzal Guerrero. The singer says that growing up as a multicultural/multilingual American has always helped him understand and connect with different demographics of people. â€œI just think that people see that we are moving away from the values that built the strongest middle class the world has ever seen. People are standing up and simply saying NO, 1% of the population should not be allowed to control our system of government. From our point of view, the Occupy Movement is just a physical manifestation of those frustrations.â€ says Sanders.
As they prepare for their March 1st album release, the guys are booking a few shows to give the public an early preview of the new material. Catch One Tribe Nation LIVE in a special performance at Skinny’s Lounge, 4923 Lankershim Blvd. North Hollywood, CA 91601 on Tuesday January 24, 2012 at 9:00pm.
