The Music Warrior Nahko Bear

“Music speaks what cannot be expressed, soothes the mind and gives it a rest, heals the heart and makes it whole, flows from heaven to the soul.”_ Unknown 

Some people will hear the call…  When they do, it will be so powerfully loud that there will be no other way to deal with it rather than them proudly following it.

Some people will lead you… It’s just the way it is. They will have such a strong mission; they have to wear the warrior’s armour and live under it.

Nahko Bear is with no doubt a warrior, a music warrior. His spirit, bright and shining, is on a mission, and part of this mission is to awaken the people.  Awakenings can be of various kinds and can happen in various ways. Nahko is here to bring a magical type, starting with the power of his music, then going into his message and his kindness.

When I first heard his songs, I felt my soul immediately expand in awe and wonder.

Aloha, Aloha Ke Akua, Ke Akua, Aloha, Aloha, Kuleana, Kuleana.” If you haven’t heard their music, here is a link to this wonderful song full of life and spirit.

Nahko Bear -The Music Warrior

When you meet a warrior you are not sure what to expect, especially if this warrior makes sure everyone feels he is just like everyone else and that we are all the same and all connected.

His soul is young and playful, and at the same time full of life, joy and light; loads of light. He is very passionate for his mission and dedicated to his fans and his Ohana band (Hawaiian name for family).

Interviewing Nahko was very inspiring, and getting to know him a little and the whole band was a great experience. Nahko is very transparent; what you see is what you get. He is present, and his kindness is seen in the way he treats the fans with such care and respect.

You can listen to the whole interview here:

Nahko is like a big kid very playful , that’s a big personality trait on open hearted people

“I think our music promotes the bridging of all tribes,” Nahko says. “The lyrics and the stories and our energy as a group break down people’s walls. You’ll find us in the most unique places on earth because it’s real, raw, and honest storytelling about what we’ve been through and what we believe in. And that’s why people connect with it. I think that’s the most important thing you can do with music.”_ Nahko Bear

Seeing Nahko and the Medicine for the People perform live was certainly an experience I’ll never forget; they were just unbelievably amazing, and you can read more about this here.

The Power Of Music – Nahko And Medicine For The People

Music inspires, music can change one’s frequency; it can touch one’s feelings in the deepest ways. It can truly guide you throughout your life, day by day, it can change your humour and can accompany you on your journey, happy or sad, and it can hold your hand at any time.

Some of the most amazing things in life just happen, they completely appear from nowhere with no warning and without expectation; that’s how I first encountered the poetical inspiring spiritual lyrics of Nahko and Medicine for the People, by chance.

If you are familiar with their music, you know what it’s all about, but if you haven’t been blessed here is a video that will blow your heart away.

See Aloha Ke Akua Lyrics click here 

After watching the Aloha Ke Akua video I was hooked; it was truly irrefutable love at first sight. I have heard it so many times (still not enough) but I’m definitely working on embedding it into my soul.

It didn’t take me long to develop respect, admiration, curiosity, and to became a fan of the band and its message. I then set my heart on meeting, interviewing and watching these amazing people perform live.

Speaking of synchronicities, I became a fan of the band just before going to Hawaii, which is where they live, but when I headed to Hawaii they were touring in Europe. Luckily, I managed to make it to their very last show in Europe right after returning from Hawaii, and so I had the time of my life watching Nahko and Medicine for the People performing live in Brussels on the 19th of April, 2015.

Nahko and Medicine for the People live in Brussels

Well that was a new experience for me, to jam with my spirit guides in a live rock show; I can’t believe I just said that! But there is no other way to describe it. I was right at the front of the stage listening to the music, singing out loud and feeling the presence of my guides and other benevolent spirits, seeing rainbows all around the stage and feeling the power of the music. And you may be thinking “mmm that’s a bit trippy”, but I don’t even drink alcohol, so it was pure bliss!

See, their music and lyrics are truly spiritual. They carry strong messages and are in fact full of power and healing. I never knew a rock concert could be like that, with such high vibrations and encompassing higher dimensions within it.

Once again, my heart chakra expanded and became bigger and bigger, and I was sending love to the whole planet, then to the whole universe. I was the universe; that’s the power of music, healing music.

After the concert I had the chance to see Nahko, Justin, Chase and Pato interact with their fans. They were once again unbelievably welcoming. Really there is no separation here, they create such a friendly environment with their fans; it’s so great to watch how much they care and value them.

I spoke with and met the band members performing in Brussels; each one of them brings their own special light to the group.

Chase Makai and Sabrina Santos – Brussels 2015

Chase Makai plays the 12 string acoustic guitar. This Aussie free spirit sure has a hint of mystery to himself. The first thing that caught my attention while chatting to him was his connection to Spirit animal energy – I shall call him the great Eagle. Chase, like the other members of the group, has a childlike vibe full of pure energy and vibrancy.

Pato and Sabrina Santos – Brussels 2015

Pato, Patricio Labarca, is the newest addition to the band. Pato sure is like a box full of surprises. He plays various instruments including the guitar, bass, percussion, piano, balafon, kora, ngoni, djembe, and anything that can make a sound. His eyes give away his kind warm-hearted nature, and his constant smiling greets everyone with love.

Justin Chittmas and Sabrina Santos – Happy Birthday in Brussels 2015

Justin Chittmas is another gifted musician that brings the power of the drums to the group. And what a delight it was to meet Justin on his birthday! We all got to sing happy birthday to him and celebrate the light of his soul turning 25 years young. Like the others, Justin has this super friendly way of communicating and connecting with the fans, and is very passionate about their mission.

Saving for last, but not least, I was blessed to meet Mr Bear!

Nahko Bear and Sabrina Santos – Being silly after the interview in Brussels 2015

Nahko Bear is a true warrior, bringing such intensity with his voice, soul, and every single cell of his body. His kindness towards the fans is overwhelmingly delightful. I’ve never seen an artist who truly puts no separation between themselves and fans. I had the chance to interview Nahko, and I’ve saved this for another article. Please click here to read this: The Music Warrior Nahko Bear.

Overall, I can say that these people are indeed raising the world’s vibration; their music is truly inspiring, and it carries an important message to awaken the world to spiritual power, to love and compassion.

Nahko Bear And Medicine For The People – Aloha Ke Akua

If you believe music can truly touch your soul, expand your conciousness and connect you to the spirit of Oneness; you are in for a treat.

Open your heart and let the music and this amazing video inspire you.

Nahko and Medicine for the People                         “Aloha Ke Akua” Video and Lyrics

Lend your ears, lend your hands,
Lend your movement, anything you can.
Come to teach, come to be taught.
Come in the likeness in the image of God.
Cause, you can be like that.
With all that humbleness, and all that respect.

All of the power invested in me,
be it hard to love my enemies.
All of the black bags over the heads of the dead and dying.

The more I understand about the human race,
the less I comprehend about our purpose and place
and maybe if there was a clearer line
the curiosity would satisfy.

Time based prophecies that kept me from living,
in the moment I am struggling
to trust the divinity of all the guides
and what the hell they have planned for us.

I cry for the creatures who get left behind
but everything will change in a blink of an eye
and if you wish to survive,
you will find the guide inside.

I go back and forth every single day,
the clarity it comes to me in a choppy way,
as the feelings and the places
and the seasons change,
the galaxies remain.

Energy fields pullin’ up out of this space.
The angels that are a couple to the spiritual waste.
The hate that gets me distant from my spiritual pace.
Ten fold the manna when the planets are in place, in polar alignment.
We’re on assignment.
Bodies on consignment.
Return them to the circus.

And what is the purpose?
What is the purpose and would you believe it?
Would you believe it
if you knew what you were for
and how you became so in form?

Bodies of info performing such miracles.
I am a miracle made up of particles
and in this existence,
I’ll stay persistent,
and I’ll make a difference
and I will have lived it.

And the day that I don’t wake up

I am capable, I am powerful.
And the day that I don’t wake up
and transcend the holy makeup,
I am on my way to a different place….

I’m not a leader, just a creature,
seeking the features of a teacher.
Whether you follow or whether you lead
All mysterious ways of nature and I’m into it.
Changing management.

And there are various ways to conquer this monotonous metropolis,
my stubbornness is bottomless,
my fearlessness is talking shit
and I’m wide awake and I’m taking names.

And there are various ways to conquer this monotonous metropolis,
my stubbornness is bottomless,
my fearlessness is talking shit,
and I’m wide awake and I’m taking names.

Do you speak to me like you speak to God?
All of the love and understanding between the father and the son?
Do you believe in the perfectness of where you are?
These are my people, these are my children,
this is the land that I would fight for.

My solidarity is telling me to patiently
be moving the musical medicine around the planet in a hurry,
Cuz there’s no time to waste.
Got to wake up the people time to stand up and say,
we know what we are for
and how we became so in form.
Bodies of info, performing such miracles.
I am a miracle, made up of particles
and in this existence,
I’ll stay persistent
and I’ll make a difference
and I will have lived it. ……..
