There have been many millions of hits every week to the official German website of Tribeworld at Why don’t you check it out and see what is happening with the Tribe in Germany and test your German speaking skills?!

The Tribe is huge in Germany, particularly since the Tribe is shown right across the country on KIKA. Every day there are heaps of letters to the Tribe Stars from German fans as well as all those in english-speaking countries. It’s fantastic to see such an immediate response from fans across the world.

Additionally, the Tribe album “Abe Messiah” has recently been released across the country, and you can find it in all good record stores.

Daniel James (ZOOT) chat a huge success!!

What a raging success on Sunday NZ time, when Danny James came to the Hexagon at Cloud 9 in Lower Hutt to talk via the UBB to fans all over the world.

With him was a German translator to ensure he could talk to the German fans who had logged on especially to chat to their ‘Power & Chaos’ character – ZOOT. Of course they are very familiar with him at the moment because KIKA in Germany only started broadcasting The Tribe series one in April of this year.

One lucky German fan won a phone call with Danny James (ZOOT). She was filled with excitement at having won a chat with him all the way from New Zealand. They spoke about the differences in life in Germany and New Zealand, their music interests, how she had recognised some of his other work shown on German television, and the fact that he sounded a little different than he did in the Tribe because they hear a German voice playing the part of ZOOT!
