Review: Nahko – ‘My Name Is Bear’

Nahko is best known as the front man for the world music collective, Medicine For The People. His first solo work, ‘My Name Is Bear’ is in essence a prequel to his work with the People, and comprises 16 tracks of music and “interludes”, mostly written between the ages of 18 and 21, with some a little later. The interludes are actual unedited tape recordings of his raw thoughts. The end result is a pleasing insight into the mind of a very thoughtful and wise man.
