Biography

“Nama Rupa… plunging earnestly and urgently into reggae’s syncopations and political rants.” - The Onion

Nama Rupa is a fresh and soulful musical energy from the Midwest, currently with a home base in Madison, Wisconsin.

Lending a hand to the “one love” reggae community, Nama Rupa has shared the stage with Lee “Scratch” Perry, Devon Evans of The Wailers, Sister Carol, Natty Nation, Giant Panda Guerilla Dub Squad, Jah Roots, The Cool and Deadly, Chicago Afrobeat Project, Public Property, The Beautiful Girls, Heavyweight Dub Champion, The Drastics and many others.

Dubbed by the press as a “reggae hybrid”, Nama Rupa offers a fresh blend of conscious, reggae dub with strong funk, hip-hop and rock undertones. Eclectic beats, catchy melodies and a psychedelic vibe keep fans dancing; while the lyrics, flowing from self-reflective to socially critical, keep them thinking.

Nama Rupa has developed a remarkably healthy fan base throughout the Mid-West over a small time period performing at venues from Eau Claire, WI to Springfield, MO and everywhere in between and is preparing to move into the national scene.

Whether fast or slow, the songs are always groovin’ and Nama Rupa is sure to keep any venue on their feet, dancing and thirsty.
