Leftist Neo-Soul

(Pōneke / Wellington)

Astonesian native, NahBo, is sad about colonisation, then writes beats about it.

NahBo is a character designed by Te Whanganui-a-Tara-based artist Taranaki Ah Young-Grace (of Ngati Ruanui, Ngati Tuwharetoa, Samoa, China, the UK, Ireland, Germany, and France) who they say is an Astronesian native traversing and lamenting the realities of colonisation and capitalism after being shot back over 300 years in time into the body of

a human born in 1993. The sonic aesthetic of NahBo relies heavily on Taranaki's time studying vocals in the jazz performance course at the University of Auckland as well as

their love for neo-soul, indie rap, hip hop, DIY shit, and sticking it to "the man".
