WE MANIFEST UPDATES
HAIR BY NATURE
In the mid 90's, live performances, communal gatherings and the subculture of talented but unknown artists flourished throughout New York City. Every artist had the gift of bringing excitement to their audience, a love of natural living, and dedication to their business. We Manifest was one of the few pioneers of that higher vibration that has strengthened the underground movement into the current enterprises of independent artists and businesses we currently enjoy.
In July of 1997, We Manifest began creating and producing showcases and discussion forums to expose the untapped talent in NYC. We also had an epidemic of injustice that permeated throughout communities of black and brown people. Consequently, the music being made was innovative and message-filled. Political awareness was on the rise, even though social networks on the Internet were still budding. The underground momentum was respected more than mainstream media gave it credit. We lived what we did and were finally being recognized for it! We Manifest is still inspired by the hundreds of artists who were grinding to live their art, by any means necessary.
