Chestertown, MD, January 19, 2005 — Natty Nation—internationally known hard roots, rock and reggae genre benders—will play Washington College's Town Hall, Friday, February 4, 9:30-11:30 p.m. The concert is free for all Washington College students, staff and faculty with ID.
Known for weaving conscious lyrics, heavy rock, dancehall and dub into traditional roots reggae, Natty Nation has enjoyed a great fan base not only in their hometown of Madison, Wisconsin, but in cities across the country. Never shy for the rigors of the road, the band has traveled from coast to coast spreading their positive messages, using music to enlighten and unify people from different cultures, races and nations. As an “indie” band, they have produced and managed their own direction in order to follow their artistic impulses and diversify into what they call “socially conscious, educational hip hop,” never letting “industry norms” push them away from new musical adventures and styles.
On their newest release, Inatty in Jah Music, Natty widens their scope to include hip-hop, even heavier rock, harder dancehall, some traditional nyabinghi, soaking wet dub and even a little drum 'n bass, just to name a few. The driving beat of Natty Nation will not only make you want to jump up and dance, but to listen to the message of the music.
