Nahko And Medicine For The People
Over the last 5 years, NahkoAnd Medicine For The People have continued to gather dedicated members of their global tribe of likeminded fans as they spread their powerful musical message.They incorporate a variety of sounds, ranging from alternative roots to acoustic rock while promoting social change.Their albumHOKAdebuted at #10 on Billboard’s Rock Album Chart and #6 on the Alternative Album Chart.Nahko’s solo album,My Name is Bear,debutedon a number of Billboard charts including Independent Albums (#11), Tastemakers (#14), Emerging Artists (#19), Top Album Sales (#43), and Top 200 Albums (#170). The album also premiered at #1 on iTunes and the headline tour in support of it boasted multiple sold-out dates both stateside and in Europe.My Name is Bearis a 16-track collection that reflects the soul, authenticity, and spirit that Nahko’s fans have come to know. It predates Nahko’s rise to mythos among diehard fans of Medicine For The People.As he puts it, the album serves as a “prequel,” that artfully merges rustic acoustic guitars, upbeat energy, tribal flavors, fiery percussion, and ponderous lyrics. At the end of the day,My Name is Bear,sets the stage for a whole lot more from Nahko.

The new wave of hip-hop has arisen a woke generation. From it, Xiuhtezcatl — seventeen-year-old Indigenous rapper and activist — has emerged, stirring the comatose with his music.

From performing at the Standing Rock encampment with Immortal Technique and Nahko to leading the Youth v. Gov. lawsuit against the Federal Government, Xiuhtezcatl’s actions show his music is more than words.

Xiuhtezcatl grew up immersed in the indigenous Aztec traditions of his father and advocating for social and environmental justice with his mother.

Recently Xiuhtezcatl performed before the U.N. General Assembly, collaborated on stage and in the studio with Jaden Smith and Bassnectar, and appeared on Real Time with Bill Maher and The Daily Show with Trevor Noah.

Additionally, he wrote the best-selling book, We Rise, and is featured in the next iconic series by Shepard Fairey, We The Future.
