U.Tribe ("Urban Tribe") was created through the meeting of two born artists and both madly in love with arts, Erell Niane and Mick Viry, in January 2005. The union of these two natures, strong and distinct as fire and air, takes us into a world of music and dance fundamentally mixed and diverse. U.Tribe is a subtle mix between quite technical urban dances, such as hip-hop or contemporary dance, and primary african dances inherited from our ancestors ( "the Force is in our Roots"), all of the latter brought in the context of salsa and of the various parallel Latin rhythms. After a great deal of personal experiences, Mike and R.elle gave U.TRIBE its first choreography "Nina", a tribute to salsa-ancestors afro rhythms. In February 2005, this show was presented at an European level a the Zurich congress, Switzerland. The specificity of U.Tribe resides in a deep respect for the music, prior to anything else. Both Erell and Mike could not help but play with the musical heritage of their childhood. Their dance style is flowing and generous, and always in sync with the tempo; a surprising and explosive mix between strength, fieriness, grace, and high level of technique.
