Electric Pow Wow Drum

A few years ago, while researching the story, I watched this clip about the hearing-impaired Native American man who was murdered by a police officer as he carved a piece of wood. Terrible story. However, it introduced me to a DJ outfit by the name of A Tribe Called Red. I readily and gladly admit I'm not really into dance music but all day I've had this tune of theirs in my head from where it now adamantly refuses to leave:

They call the style 'powowstep'. The best part is the 'drop', which is sampled traditional singing.
