LIBERATION MOVEMENT IS A NEW TYPE OF MUSICAL EXPERIENCE
Led by Resurrector of Heavyweight Dub Champion (HDC), LIBERATION MOVEMENT (LM) is a new collaborative music project that pushes the boundaries of human experience.
Check out the KĒVENS promo video:
LIBERATION MOVEMENT was founded in the Amazon in 2010 with the support of the Shipibo Tribe of Peru. Since that time it has grown to include more than 75 collaborators from 6 continents representing more than 1000 years of combined experience in their respective fields of artistic, healing and music mastery.
More than 25 Peruvian Shamans have contributed to the project in music and video including participation in a Liberation Movement concert to nearly 1000 indigenous Peruvians in the town center of Yarinacocha in Pucallpa, Peru. The concert and subsequent 3 week trip to villages of the Amazon was funded by the Rubin Foundation of NYC in Collaboration with Peruvian NGO Alianza Arkana and filmed by Mitch Schultz, writer/director of the film DMT: The Spirit Molecule. LM also appeared on Peruvian Television and Radio to promote the project and event. They are currently working on a documentary film about the experience.
LM uses quantum physics principles to generate a new focus for reality creation within the context of a collaborative music project. They combine music, visuals, symbology and ideology to build an immersive environment of holistically revolutionary principles to increase individual and collective autonomy and freedom of expression.
LM has performed throughout the US, Canada, Peru and Costa Rica at unique events and festivals including Symbiosis, Lightning In A Bottle, Envision, Beloved, Enchanted Forest, Lucidity, Joshua Tree Spring, and Fall Festival, Sonic Bloom and many others.
