The Tribunes hail from Salford, Bradford, London and Derby via Kinshasa… their philosophy is to stand with the oppressed against the oppressor. “…no nation that oppresses another can itself be free.” Suggested Marx. The Tribunes agree…
Deeds are not measured in words but in action and commitment… The Tribunes use every opportunity through their music, to join the struggle with others against war, neo-liberalism, racism, sexism, homophobia… and fascism – all the horrors of the capitalist system.
Both Eyes Blind – The Tribunes
The Tribunes are a fiercely political up-and-coming jazz act. They combine music with spoken words to create what band member Gary Duke describes as “a head-on collision between The Streets and John Coltrane.”
