Invisible No More – Spotify’s first-ever playlist of Native American musicians

Earlier this year, Native Americans in Philanthropy was especially excited to begin 2018 by announcing an amazing project that amplifies the Native American voice, vocals in particular. We collaborated with Spotify, Taboo of the Black Eyed Peas, and The California Endowment to curate a Spotify playlist entitled Invisible No More. This is Spotify’s first-ever playlist of Native American musicians and has Indian Country very excited. And what’s more, it highlights Native American vocalists, rappers, producers and lyricists across all music genres because we are that talented and then some! This awesome playlist puts the well-deserved spotlight on our brothers and sisters with some impressive sets of pipes and powerful messages. These artists compose with their hearts to fight for our people, youth, and future, and we greatly appreciate them lending their talents to elevate our collective voices and resistance. We are proud that this important feat has been shared widely since its release on January 3rd, as this is a significant moment for contemporary Native American musicians to be featured on the most popular music streaming platform.  

We don’t know about you, but the staff here at Native Americans in Philanthropy are huge fans of our Native musicians and jam out to their music all day. They keep us going in the office and at the gym! Their words, the cadence, the rhythm, the rhyme, the drumbeats, the tears — all give us the reminder and empowerment we need to keep fighting, enduring, and overcoming. If you haven’t checked it out, we highly encourage you to take a listen, if not download it and take it with you everywhere you go. It’s a pretty amazing, life-changing experience. Like us, you probably won’t be able to get through your day without a few listens of “The Fight” by Taboo, “Love Letters to God” by Nahko and Medicine for the People, “Taste of Time” by Scatter Their Own, “Where is the Love?” by The Black Eyed Peas, “We Are the Hulluci Nation” by A Tribe Called Red (featuring John Trudell), and classic, “Come and Get Your Love” by Redbone. And that’s just six songs out of 30! Trust us, you want to hear the rest, it’s an incredible queue of talented Native musicians. The best thing you’ll do today is head to Spotify, search Invisible No More, follow and download the playlist, and cue the music!
