Lead singer and songwriter Sid McNairy began the movement of Nahi when he went to the mountains for his vision quest, a Native American rite of passage to becoming an adult. After his third vision quest of four, Sid was given his Native American name that birthed his mission. The name Nahi means “He who brings peace,” began the mission of Nahi to spread peace around the world. Sid often reflected on his life before this moment where violence, chaos and hate consumed many moments leading up to his transformation. Through the transformation of his own journey Sid began to see that by singing not only could he continue to lift his spirits, he could help others raise up as well. Sid began to see how embracing his mission was changing him every day. He realized that anything or anyone that was not moving his mission forward would have to walk separate journeys. As he continued to shift it was obvious that others were shifting with him. It is beautiful to watch everyone find a deep state of peace and allow God’s love to elevate the world through the music of Nahi.
“This is God’s music and we are blessed to bring it forward.” -Sid
