Some people go a lifetime without knowing their mission in life, without feeling they have true calling, and without knowing why they even do what they do. Nahko is 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. Not just to talk, but to do,' says Oregon-born singer/songwriter Nahko, who is of Puerto Rican, Native American (Apache), and Filipino descent.
