New tune from Digital Diaspora

 

 

With timing that can only be described as 'cosmic' Digital Diaspora, a musical collective interested in positive social change, have released their latest track Boycott Time just weeks after the launch of our very own Amazon boycott campaign.

Gregory from the group says they have produced the song "as our contribution to the revolt against the consumerist veneer of the 1%. This song is intended to voice our collective potential for refusing to support the corporations and governments that expect us to shut up, buy more stuff, and accept a world of profound inequality."

He told us in that  "As this spending season comes and goes, we hope to foster a culture where greed and exploitation are no longer supported or celebrated. As in the Afrobeat tradition,in our music and our message we strive to provide a way for people to get down with radical ideas,while gettin' down."

We love the tune and we've made it our unofficial anthem. We hope you enjoy it as much as us.
