We hereby announce the launch of our first new project in two years: Protest Music, available worldwide at www.protestmusic.org. Our attempt at sparking more of a conversation about political and socially conscious music, the site intends to promote artists from around the world doing amazing work, all while trying to increase the recognition of protest music as its own distinct genre, able to stand up against any other. Read more about the project here.
If you think we’re on the right track, then by all means support our work — you can “like” Protest Music on Facebook, follow the site on Twitter, or show solidarity on Lokashakti. You can even subscribe to the site’s RSS feed or sign up to receive periodic emails from us about the kinds of things going on over there.
You can also write for Protest Music, especially if you have ideas for a post, or send us material to review (read more on the About page). Finally, if you’d like to help make sure we continue to keep these articles coming, consider making a tax-deductible donation, which you can learn more about here. Thanks! Enjoy! Let us know what you think!
