Nahko and Medicine for The People @ Bijou Theatre July 25th!

Nahko and Medicine for The People hit the Bijou Theatre stage Tuesday, July 25th at 8pm!

“Nahkois not one of them. And that calling and mission has never been clearer than it is on Nahko and Medicine for the People‘s third full-length album, HOKA(SideOneDummy Records).

On HOKA, Nahko‘s voice is strong. His mission is clear. The mandate has been thrown down. ”Hoka is a Lakota word, an indigenous tribe from the Great Plains, it is a call to action. It‘s what Crazy Horse would say when he went into battle, ’Hoka, hey!‘ My call is to put action to the words that I speak and the lyrics I sing.

Critics have praised the group‘s worldly blend of rock, hiphop, and altfolk. OC Weekly called the group which also includes Chase Makai (lead guitar), Justin Chittams (drums), Pato (bass and kora),Tim Snider (violin) and Max Ribner (horns), ”empowering“ and ”powerful. ”The Huffington Post called […]
