with: Mike, Nathan, Isaac.
Black Nature is an original musical artist who composes and performs positive music that incorporates a unique blend of African Rhythms, Reggae, Dancehall, Rock, Hip-Hop and R&B. He is also a musical producer and filmmaker.
As a young child, Black Nature began singing and playing percussion, and he was greatly influenced by the rich musical culture of Sierra Leone. In the midst of the country’s brutal 10 year civil war, he fled to neighboring Guinea where he was placed in a refugee camp. During his time at the camp, he and other Sierra Leonean refugees formed a band that later became the world renowned Sierra Leone’s Refugee All Stars.
While remaining a member of The Sierra Leone’s Refugee All Stars, Black Nature also established his own band in San Francisco over a year ago, called the Black Nature Band. The band includes a diverse group of musicians from San Francisco, San Diego, and Brazil.This rapidly growing band has been performing as both an opening act and as a headlining act in various venues throughout the San Francisco Bay Area, such as the Independent, Kimo’s, Grant and Green, the Bissap Baobab, Amnesia, the Rockit-it Room, 50 Mason, the Boom Boom Room, Moe’s Alley, the Mardi Gras San Francisco Style Festival 2012, Santa Clara University and several other local schools and non-profit agencies. These performances were well received by various audiences. The band also appeared on the KSCU Radio Station, KPOO Radio Station and the African Channel, and has toured in Southern California, Arizona, New Mexico, and Texas.
