Nahko and Medicine for the People

Nahko (Nahkohe Parayno), a sixth generation Apache/Mohawk with a Puerto Rican/Indian mother and a Filipino father, grew up with the family that adopted him in an Oregon suburb, and suffered some early childhood identity problems until he began to ground himself in music, taking up the piano at age six, and in his teens, he gave piano lessons and directed musical productions for local schools. His talents landed him a seasonal production position in Denali, Alaska, and there, with the wilderness around him, he began to put all the musical, cultural, and philosophical pieces of his personal creative vision together. Seeing music as international, multi-generational, and multicultural, and as a redemptive and healing force, he joined with his backing group, Medicine for the People, anchored by horn player and Berklee School of Music graduate Max Ribner and percussionist Hope Medford. Together they began making what has been called "thump-hop," a percussion heavy, rainbow-envisioned mix of styles and approaches that is at times as much spoken word as anything else, a sort of 21st century medicine show for the mind and soul. A debut album, Dark as Night, appeared in 2013. ~ Steve Leggett, Rovi

Nahko has awakened A Part Of My Soul which I forgot I had. Living In Vegas For most of My Life. It molded me into something I hate and love. But when I heard Nahko. My Soul Became Cleansed in A Way, I have the Same Soul. It just Shines Brighter now.

an open letter to Nahko and the family,
as you yourself say in "wash away", music is activism, & I too AM proud to be living in a generation where prayer is the most G thing you can do. The first song I ever heard was budding trees, which really opened my eyes and spiritually awakened me to the very core of my being. The next two months felt like a whole lifetime of experience, learning, and spiritual growth. I always knew I was destined to change the world, but only when I heard your music did

Nahko's music is my medicine. Much love ❤️❤️

I saw them play for the first time at Electric Forest this summer and I met Nahko after his show in Harrisburg this year. He is so real, so down to earth and a goofy guy. He is his music. He is genuine, passionate, and honest and you can feel it in the music and lyrics of his songs. Nahko and MFTP's music have helped me through some serious life changes and I am blessed to come across this beautiful sound.

My newest favorite band. I saw them at Wakarusa this year and am seeing them again at Art Outside. The love you feel at their shows is overflowing. I would love to meet them, give them all huge hugs, and thank them for spreading such great messages with their music, words, and love.

I've seen them play here on the Big Island at both large venues w/ a cover and for free at Uncle Robert's awa bar in Kaimu and at Dave's awa bar in Hilo. Some shows were better than others, but they were all great and worth it.
