Post your comments about our Nahki Interview and let us know what you thought of him.
“One old Rastaman approached me from the dark right after I finished my rehearsal with the band and shook my hand with tears in his eyes, saying “You know Jah notes. So please continue what you are doing.” I still can’t forget that moment.” – Nahki
The Reggae music from the island of Jamaica have captivated artists from around the world. For Nahki of Nagoya, Japan, it would become his life’s obsession. He first fell in love with the music as a teen listening to the radio. At the age of 18 he moved to Tokyo, formed his own band and learned to play the music of his far away idols.
When the great Sugar Minott traveled to Tokyo for a tour in 1984 Nahki was given the chance to jam with his idol, an event he describes as “a night of dreams comes true!” And when Sugar Minott invited Nahki to come to Jamaica to perfect his craft, Nahki’s lifelong desire of bringing the music and cultures of Japan and Jamaica closer together became his reality.
On August 26, 2009 Nahki was kind enough to give an interview to J-Pop World. Nahki Interview.
