NAHKO AND MEDICINE FOR THE PEOPLE:
“As storytellers, we turn the experience into something shared. We are taking to that great road again to bring our medicine to you. Naming this tour the 'Take Your Power Back Tour' felt entirely appropriate given the state of the planet and all Her creatures great and small. Women of wonder and potent poetry will join us on that fall road. Ayla Nereo brings her big medicine to half of this tour and Nattali Rize brings her big power to the other half. We can already feel the high vibe container, a congregation cultivating a safe space for transmission and reconciliation. Tears and laughter. Movement and medicine. Arrive at our gathering this fall with whatever shape your heart is in. Full, broken, in pieces, strong, hopeful, hurting, overflowing, all of it. We’ll help best we can. It’s us. Together. We’ll see you there, familia.” - Nahko
Nahko And Medicine For The People continue to gather dedicated members of their global Medicine Tribe of likeminded fans as they spread their positive and powerful musical message around the nation on their Take Your Power Back headline tour this fall. Fans and critics alike praise the group's worldly blend of rock, hip-hop, and alt-folk with OC Weekly calling the group "empowering" and "powerful”, while The Huffington Post compared Nahko to Bob Marley and called him a "musical prophet". The October 2017 album ‘My Name is Bear’ premiered at #1 on iTunes and debuted on a number of Billboard charts, and the headline tour in support of the album boasted multiple sold-out dates throughout the USA and Europe. ‘My Name Is Bear’ is a 16-track collection that reflects the soul, authenticity, and spirit that Nahko And Medicine For The People’s Medicine Tribe has come to know and love. Their previous album ‘HOKA’, which was released in June 2016, sold over 8,000 units in its first week in the U.S. and debuted at #6 on the Billboard Alternative Albums Chart. The album went on to win Record of the Year at the Native American Music Awards later that year.
Nahko And Medicine For The People are firm believers in using music as a tool of empowerment to protect and preserve all of creation. They aim to inspire others to take a deeper role in protecting and preserving our planet, people, and the spirit in all of creation.
The band is thrilled to release new music in 2019 and continue their world tour this summer in advance of the Take Your Power Back fall headline tour, including stops at Bonnaroo, Glastonbury, Woodstock 50, Lockin’ Music Festival and more!
Australia's Nattali Rize is a singer/guitarist/songwriter known for her politically minded, reggae-influenced pop/rock. A native of Byron Bay, Rize (initially known as Natalie Pa'apa'a) first began making music as a street performer alongside partner Carlo Santone in the band Skin. In 2004, the couple moved to Melbourne and formed the eight-member roots-and-reggae band Blue King Brown, with whom they recorded and performed for over a decade. After relocating to Jamaica in 2014, Pa'apa'a began working on solo material and adopted the stage name Nattali Rize, purportedly inspired by both the Native American word "natt" meaning "speaker" and the Bob Marley song "Rise Up." In 2015, she collaborated with the reggae ensemble Notis for her debut EP, New Era Frequency. Featured on the album was the single "Rebel Love." Two years later, she delivered her debut full-length album, Rebel Frequency, which included guest appearances from Julian Marley, Raging Fyah, and others.
