Nama Rupa

Nama Rupa is a soulful musical energy from the mid-west with a home-base in Madison WI. The band was formed in 2006 by active members Paul Reinke, Jason Himebauch and Tyson Klobes after many months of meditative musical processing at a converted practice facility in a south side warehouse area.

After a successful introduction, Nama Rupa was quickly picked up by local press and dubbed as a "reggae hybrid" offering a fresh blend of conscious, reggae dub with strong funk and hip hop undertones. From the band's onset, eclectic beats, catchy melodies and a psychedelic vibe have kept fans dancing; while the lyrics, flowing from self-reflective to socially critical, have kept them thinking.

Lending a hand to the "one love" reggae community, Nama Rupa has shared the stage with The Wailers,The Mighty Diamonds, Devon Evans, The Beautiful Girls, Sister Carol, Passafiya, Giant Panda Guerilla Dub Squad, Euforquestra, Jah Roots, The Cool and Deadly, Chicago Afrobeat Project, Heavyweight Dub Champion, Public Property, The Drastics and many others.
