"Tribe" is a Soulfly song included as the fourth track of the 1998 self-titled album Soulfly. "Tribe" is the fourth single released by the band, exactly nine months after the album came out. Berimbau performed by Max Cavalera is played while it sings softly in Portuguese during the first minute of this six-minute song. Drums sounding like tin cans kick off the chorus that features swirling downtuned metal riffs. The tribal drum solo occurs during the last 90 seconds of the song.

"Tribe" is a very fan-friendly song due to its title since Tribe refers to Soulfly and the fans. Because of this, "Tribe" plays in front of the fans many times. Of all the Soulfly songs, only "Back to the Primitive", the leadoff track of the next album, was played in concerts more.

Lyrics Edit

Zumbi e o senhor das guerras
Zumbi e o senhor das demandas
Quando zumbi chega
E zumbi quem manda

Zumbi e o senhor das guerras
Zumbi e o senhor das demandas
Quando zumbi chega
E zumbi quem manda

Zumbi e o senhor das guerras
Zumbi e o senhor das demandas
Quando zumbi chega
E zumbi quem manda

Zumbi e o senhor das guerras
Zumbi e o senhor das demandas
Quando zumbi chega
E zumbi quem manda

Bumba

Hear the drums they come from the sea
Bring the tribal spirit on me
Cause my pride and my roots I believe
No this tribe you can't take it from me

Hear the drums they come from the sea
Bring the tribal spirit on me
Cause my pride and my roots I believe
No this tribe you can't take it from me

Apalai apiaca arara botocudo
Goitaka guarany yamamadi ypixuna
Maori aboriginal zulu banshee
Mohican masai hopi panga
Omai asaro xingu buli
Guaikuru tukano tupinamba karo
Kaiapo
