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

This album has become the soundtrack to my life. It plays in my mind continually. I listen to it almost daily. It's addictive, meditative and affirming!!! !

I saw these guys at Outside Lands. So much fun, definitely amazing live.
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.
This guy just speaks to the people through his music
The positivity is refreshing!

California Roots was an amazing show. So cool when Jacob from SOJA came out and played with them. Can't wait to see you in Eugene tomorrow
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.
Have just recently discovered them and I can't express how much I have been enjoying!! Amazing energy, healing words, ahhhhhhhh

Way to go @Michael Cox!
@theblacksta l l i o n . You are a dumbass. And if u don't see the power in this music then go click on your Three 6 mafia station and keep you're negative judgemental comments to yourself. Fuckass
<3 moving the musical medicine around the world !
maybe i should have said the burden of guidance- regardless, know that you are appreciated
from darkness...s p i r i t u a l enlightening is born! U have not only received the gift of music, but the gift of guidance. Please continue to accept it and use it wisely. For each confused stallion you are assisting many foles.

This music has changed my perspective on life greatly, thank you for showing me the light.
so in love with the music, voice, soul
Nahko, you make my soul rise.
Love Nahko Bear and MFTP. Feeding my soul daily.
Saw them with SOJA in Houston, TX then again the following night in Austin. Amazing, amazing group. thanks SOJA for the intro...
I was too spiritually dying....so opened my mind, heart and soul to absorb Dark As Night - bless you Nahko Bear.
I never thought I needed medicine
But I was spiritually dying
I needed some healing
So I opened my mouth
And took a dose of the music

I was introduced to Nahko and MFTP in August at ARISE Festival in Loveland, CO. I will be forever changed because of his music and message! Mahalo!!
My family and I have had the pleasure to see MFTP many times within the last few years. Everytime we see MFTP perform the music feeds our soul and uplifts us in so many ways!!
so healing!
I am in total love as well:)
