— they are already 22 years, how were the beginnings of the band?
— No great expectations, rather enjoying the music that was born and the moments that were generated by adding sounds and experiences that came from different places. Everyone learning to play, to compose, to be on stage in front of people.
The group arises in the year 2000, in Santiago, with roots growing from the depths of reggae, while its fruits ripen in the expansion of Latin American music, reflecting this on their two studio albums: Namesake (2008) and get on (2012).
— 12Tribus was born in the golden age of reggae, how has the scene changed in this time?
—It has changed in the sense of the summons, before there were many more daytime events, for example, where the reggae family used to meet. children were present, girls, people of all ages and places. Today those events are no longer held and those same people seem to be more dispersed.

— There have been very good bands but unfortunately they have disappeared due to how difficult it is to sustain projects professionally.. For example, recording discs has a high cost that is difficult to finance, it gets heavy, especially if you are not playing on the radio or you are not on the grid of large festivals. We see that the current reggae scene is sustained by the strength and perseverance of the bands underground and emerging over the already established artists of the genre.
12Tribus has also participated in major festivals and has shared stages with major international artists. as Kimany Marley, Prophetic Culture, The CAFRES, Easy Stars All Stars, among others, as well as with a variety of national artists such as Original movement, Congress, Gondwana, to name a few.

— Having come to play on the biggest stages in the country, sharing with artists we admired in our beginner stage, in addition to listen to sing our songs in every corner we have been. But nevertheless, We believe that the most important milestone has been keep us 22 years creating and growing as people/musicians, it has not been easy, but we are thankful for it.
