Reggae band Natural Nation comes from Rotterdam . The band was founded in 2001 by bass-man Michel, skank-man Rhythmic, en percussion-man Alexander. After completing the line-up with 3 leadsingers a repertoire with strictly own songs was built, and after that the first gigs were done. In this period their first single-cd “Sweet lady” was recorded.
After the 3 leadsingers left, the current leadsinger Mr Mario1a entered the band. This formation now recorded a few new demos such as “Look so fine” and “Do you remember”. This crew did perform for a couple of years. In the year of 2007 the band recorded their first cd named”Are You Ready” wich is being received positive by the press.
Now in 2008 they have some new demo’s that have to result in a new cd that has been released in Januari 2009.
