Brave Troubadours is an educational series, showcasing today's frontline musical activists. Each live episode offers 60+ minutes of song and conversation - an entertaining and inspiring virtual roundtable that explores music's capacity to move the needle on the issues of our time such as civil rights, climate advocacy, poverty, and health. Meet artists on the frontlines of change, bring your questions and learn how to take some music-driven action of your own.
April's episode honors Earth Day. We'll focus on environmental justice, and caring for the land and each other. Joining us are three diversely talented musicians: RaShad Eas (AKA Dr. Thomas Easley) is a prolific lyricist and academic whose art teaches people of all ages about life, social justice and the environment. Elexa Dawson creatively explores what it means to be Anishinaabe, honoring the healing of past ancestors and generations to come by sharing her culture of music, food and story. Troubadours of Divine Bliss (Aim Me and Renee) are healing guides and musicians who inspire courage of the heart through their travels, performances and their retreat center - Way of the Heart Woods - which facilitates ecological and spiritual renewal. Join these frontline social change musicians as they perform live, offer the stories behind their work, and participate in a round-table discussion.
Artists were joined by Emcee, Liz Stookey Sunde, Executive Director of Music to Life. Future series will include national thought leaders and influencers relevant to the discussion topic.
