Nahko and Medicine For The People
Nahko and Medicine for the People are returning to Bluesfest with their worldly blend of rock, hip-hop, and alt-folk and will be bringing their new album HOKA with them!
HOKA is the third full-length album from Nahko and Medicine for the People, who have earned a horde of Bluesfest fans after their roof-raising performances in 2014 and 2016, which saw them receive shining reviews like this;
“The man known as Nahko Bear fronts an eclectic group, including very impressive violin and trumpet players. The songs evoke images of mountains, the sea, the sky and our connections with nature. There is no shortage of love in the Mojo tent as they excel..” – THE MUSIC
“As the sun went down, it was time for some spiritual awakening with the powerful message-deliverers Nahko and Medicine for the People. As always, the tent swelled as they played and even the unfamiliar were raising their hands in earnest by the end.” - DAILY REVIEW
Oregon-born singer/songwriter Nahko, who is of Puerto Rican, Native American (Apache), and Filipino descent described the new album HOKA, as “the soundtrack of the movement for a better planet". HOKA was produced by Grammy Award-winning producer Ted Hutt (The Gaslight Anthem, Old Crow Medicine Show, Lucero, Dropkick Murphys).
The countdown is on to hear Nahko and Medicine for the People’s new material and experience their inspiring and energetic performances once again next Easter.
