The Halluci Nation In Concert!
November 2 @ 7:07 pm – 9:00 pm EDT
The Sanctuary is honored to welcome the sounds of The Halluci Nation to Troy, NY! The Halluci Nation is a Canadian electronic music group who blend instrumental hip hop, reggae, moombahton and dubstep-influenced dance music with elements of First Nations music including vocal chanting and drumming.
The Halluci Nation maintains focus on what they feel they can impact most: how Indigenous people are seen. Through groundbreaking stage shows and ever-changing visuals, Bear Witness and 2oolman are working to create media that reflects the modern day Indigenous identity. They see themselves simply as contributors to a necessary conversation around a subtle and complex representation of the contemporary Indigenous experience.
About the artist: As they enter a new cycle, Bear Witness and Tim “2oolman” Hill of A Tribe Called Red are reintroducing themselves as The Halluci Nation, to reflect the evolution of their music and mission. The Halluci Nation, takes its name from a phrase coined by John Trudell, to describe the vast global community of people who remember at their core what it means to be human. As a visionary artist and activist, Trudell recognized the connection between his accomplishments and what ATCR did intuitively through music and art….
The next chapter for The Halluci Nation has them further exploring the boundaries of cross genre collaborations. In the Spring of 2023 they released a high powered collaboration with Punk-Rock Band “F*cked Up” which featured covers of “Electroshock” by Danger Rhythm, and “John Wayne was a Nazi” by MDC. This was just a small look into the creative mindset and production capabilities that Bear Witness and 2oolman possess…
This is just the START of THE HALLUCI NATION.
This concert is part of the Sanctuary Eco-Art Trail project, dedicated to celebrating the sacred Mohican soils we are honored to tend. We are beneficiaries of millennia of human history unfolding in a majestic river valley, where the land has been nurtured by Indigenous hands and traumatized through industrial development and systemic inequity.
The Sanctuary Eco-Art Trail embeds art, culture, history, and ecology into an urban nature walk on 6th Avenue in North Troy, weaving a journey from Glen Avenue to 101st Street and Freedom Square. Visitors will engage with stories of environmental justice, ecological restoration, and the living legacy of Indigenous presence on these lands through sculptures, gardens, multimedia, murals, concerts and live events and workshops. Sanctuary Eco-Art Trail is funded by a National Endowment for the Arts Our Town creative placemaking grant.
We are committed to lowering the barriers to access for events at The Sanctuary for Independent Media. For people who are hard of hearing or deaf, blind or low-vision, or whose physical limitations can interfere with a satisfying experience, let us know two weeks in advance so we can make appropriate arrangements.
