African music for peace: Native Sun for ‘Voices for Syria’

1277604_499460096811514_425072222_oNot having any family roots or direct connection to Syria does not prevent UK-based group Native Sun to use their most powerful means, their voice, to speak for peace in Syria. I really admire the sociopolitical conscious of their musical mission. Native Sun will participate in the initiative ‘Voices for Syria‘ giving four concerts in the UK (London, Sheffield, Manchester & Glascow, 3rd-6th October) along with four other acts. In a recent interview with Acatasia once again Sarina Leah explained their world-changing approach:

“We aim to better our lifestyles, how we live, how we think, how we feel, how we can prepare a better world for the future generations to come. Our music is a piece of a massive shift in humanity’s desire for us to be rid of war, greed and power control, corruption, complete ignorance and dismissal of the value of people’s lives, animal, sea, plant life … and so forth. Balance is key… negative things live side by side with positive but if positivity had more visibility on our TV screens, conversations, positive life in general would far outweight the negative and be more effective in all our lives. Music is a powerful tool for change in the minds and hearts of people this is important to us to share. It can heal and bring hope.”
