Shouts – Music from the Rooftops! is an activist media project that focuses on finding protest musicians and socially conscious artists from around the globe and sharing their music and message.
We at Shouts do not make the requirement that all musicians follow the same guidelines as most codes of ethics of journalism societies, such as to hold the powerful to account, lend a voice to the voiceless and be vigilant and courageous in seeking and sharing the facts.
But we find those who do and share their music.
There is no lack of protest singers today. There are a lot of artists out there in the mist, trying to create brightness in a very dark world. When they also carry a clear message of equality, justice and empathy then their voices must be heard.
