Black Nature


Black Nature is an artist who composes and performs 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 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, Brazil and Hawaii.

Black Nature regularly performs as a guest vocalist with various artists, such as Rupa and the April Fishes, Chris Velan, Swoop Unit, Wontana Revolution, Sila, YoMama’s Band and many other local and international touring bands. He was also invited to perform as a guest artist with Toubab Krewe on the 2012 Jam Cruise 10.
