DARREN’S DUBVERSIVE VIDEO FOR “LUANA” WHERE SOLOMON ISLANDS SINGERS MEET SOY SOS IN A SONG FOR CHILDREN’S RIGHTS
It’s an unfortunate reality but throughout the world there seems to be an epidemic of abuse and total disrespect for the human rights of children….a quick glance around the world confirms this ..wether it be child slavery /trafficking and adoption abuse in Haiti or the exploitation of street children in Egypt by the police and military among others….the list seems endless.. [ Check out a great post on ear conditioning blog on recent events in Egypt by D.Wattsriot here ] The track” Luana “ from the “IR 25 Dubversive “ album is a song that addresses the human right abuses suffered by children the world over. The vocalists are indigenous singers from the Solomon Islands in the South Pacific and include longtime IR conspirator Tohununo who collaborated previously with ace producer Soy Sos on the IR twelve inch vinyl IR 22 “Routes To Roots”.Super dub intuitive producer Soy Sos is at the mixing board helm for this mix creating a pasifika roots reggae track backed by a crew of talented musicians.Soy Sos always amazes us with his ability to reach out across the internet to musicians in a distant part of the world and just tap perfectly into the right vibe needed for that particular collaboration. Video maker Darren has created a very touching and moving video that mixes social commentary with his own unique visual treatment style.Darren is part of a growing network of IR conspirators in different parts of the globe generously contributing their time and creative efforts to add some much needed dubversion to this planet .In that vein we would like to welcome another IR conspirator in the shadows Bambu Dub in the Oceania region who is assisting us in getting the music and the message to the dub folks in the South Pacific and elsewhere… Dis fala vidio hem wanfala padifik rege “luana “song wea hem askim rispect fo oketa raets blo oketa pikinini. oketa singas from solomon aelan oketa sing insaet lo this wan and dis fala song hemi bin plei lo reidio hawai ana u.s.a.
