Revolution of the Spirit
The songs on this CD are dedicated to those individuals world-wide who have played a critical role in the struggle for justice...from Desmond Tutu in South Africa, Mahatma Gandhi in India, LeoTolstoy in Russia, Sojourner Truth, Henry David Thoreau, Jane Addams, and Cesar Chavez in America to Aung San Suu Kyi in Burma and more. Empowered by a sense of belief and duty, they fearlessly stood up to make a difference in the world. They understood that real change does not come about through coercion, but through education, dialog, and a change of heart. Recognizing that all life is interrelated, they resolutely chose a path of nonviolence, engaging in an active campaign for change that demanded suffering, creativity, resourcefulness, and persistence. This is music to educate, motivate, and inspire people. The lyrics are philosophical and profound, complimented by uplifting pop, rock, and r&b rhythms flavored with world beat influences. The credits read like a 'Who's Who' of musicians with names like Vinnie Colaiuta, Jimmy Haslip, Greg Phillinganes, David Batteau, Michael Sembello, Bakithi Kumalo, and more.
