The Native Sun is a hip-hop, soul, and jazz collective whose common goal is to exhibit true artistry and create exciting and unique soundscapes. Based out of Indianapolis, Indiana their signature sound has been carefully refined since the group began in April of 2007. Originally taking a hard stance against political injustice, the group has since modified their sound to incorporate more “feel good” rhythms that still send a message both lyrically and musically. Their early influences include a host of jazz and soul artists such as John Coltrane and Curtis Mayfield as well as legendary hip-hops acts such as A Tribe Called Quest, The Roots and Outkast. On a journey to bridge the gap between generations and genres, Native Sun hopes that you will support their music and help Indianapolis gain a signature sound that represents its rich musical history to the fullest.
