Backed by a globally diverse band of musicians—aptly named The United Nations—Australian musical artist and eco-activist Xavier Rudd this spring released a new album, Nanna. Rudd chats with us just as he’s about to kick off a North American tour with the band.

How would you describe your music? My current album is world-roots-reggae with a great respect for grandmother creation.
