(Chicago, IL) – On Thursday, Jan. 26, Chicago music venue, Concord Music Hall was filled with an inspired vibe after a sold-out performance by Nahko and Medicine for the People during the “Hoka: A Call to Action” tour.

Nahko and MFTP kept the vibe going as they opened with A Tribe Called Red’s “Electric Pow Wow”, which flowed into “All Can Be Done”.

Throughout the performance, the audience was connected not only to the songs, but to the messages given by Nahko and members of MFTP.

During his solo, Nahko spread a message of encouragement and told the crowd to channel the positive energy felt during the show into every day life.

After this solo, Nahko gave the stage to Tim Snider for an electrically charged violin solo.

After Sniders’ violin solo and before going into “Dear Brother”, Nahko brought his cell phone on stage and said his mother had called and would like to share a message with the audience.  In her message, Nahkos’ mother encouraged the audience to not lose hope in this countries’ trying time and to remember to love one another.  The crowd, already filled with empowering messages from Nahko and MFTP, was overcome with emotion after this unexpected message.

For the rest of the performance, the positive energy radiated throughout the audience.

Nahko and MFTP closed out the night was an encore of “Are You Ready?” and “Tus Pias”.

Overall, this performance definitely set the bar for 2017.
