nahko and the medicine by josue rivas

Although activism and music do join forces for good occasionally (e.g., during political campaigns, after natural disasters, etc.), few bands form with the idea to use music as medicine, but the crew that makes up Nahko and Medicine For The People started out on their musical journey with that as their goal and main theme.
