“As a public art gallery, we were intrigued by Tribe of One’s concept of bringing together music, dance, poetry and visual arts.  We hoped the performance would complement our programming with creativity and ingenuity.  The event far exceeded our expectations and hopes.  The energy, passion, talent and commitment from all the performers in the group were remarkable.  Each individual displayed such intense enthusiasm and knowledge for their specific contribution, that when together the effect was explosive.  How four individuals could manage to keep our eyes, ears and minds moving so intensely for such an extended period of time is unfathomable to me. The gallery was thrilled to be the host of such an exciting event and to be responsible for bringing such an exceptional and inspiring group to the community.  It augmented our focus on celebrating the multiculturalism of Canada beautifully.  The feedback we have received has been uniformly glowing and we have already had requests from those in attendance and from those who missed the performance to bring the group back!”                                                      Maura Broadhurst, Curator, Latcham Gallery

“After seeing videos of Tribe of One on YouTube, I was already sold... but I had no idea that these videos would pale in comparison to the live performance. I was actually moved to tears during your set, stricken with emotion at the beauty of not only of the music and the visuals, but of the message they so effortlessly convey. I have never seen a group that could, at once, be both joyous and driving, yet dark and haunting. The amount of sound coming off the stage was incredible, and the dancers complimented that sound perfectly. I heard nothing but rave reviews from the crowd. The most memorable performance of my weekend.” Ken Jaworski, Artistic Director, Brandon Folk Music and Art Festival

“Through your involvement with Aboriginal Music Program, you have joined with an elite group of rising stars representing the best and brightest Aboriginal recording artists from across the country. It is my pleasure to extend my support, encouragement and sincere best wishes to Tribe of One towards its upcoming CD release and performances across Canada. Eric Robinson, Minister of Culture, Heritage, Tourism and Sport

"‘What a unique show! Tribe of One will captivate you with music, dance and visual art which represent the love and pride these artists share for their country.      Lynn Munilla, Artistic Director, Festival du Voyageur
