Whether Nahko is performing solo or collaborating with Medicine for the People, the musical goal remains the same: to start a cultural– and spiritual– movement through music.
The group encourages their fans, whom they call their “Tribe” to live in harmony with Mother Gaia (most of us know her as Mother Earth) and to work toward personal healing through their music. Huffington Post even called Nahko a “musical prophet.” Clearly, this group is in the musical scene for more than the fans.
There isn’t one specific musical genre to describe what they’ve got going on. Actually, they’ve kind of created a genre all their own. “Thump-hop,” as they call it. It’s percussion heavy and mixes many musical styles. Their lyrics carry messages of worldly change. The group looks up to Bob Marley, both musically and in his goal of bringing people together to resolve differences. Probably in another way too…
So, if you’re looking for something unlike you’ve never heard before, this is the show for you.
