The time of joy and goodwill is closing in and what better way to celebrate than with wonderful music. One musician, who calls herself Vegan Queen V, has shared a music video for these holidays that has a bit of a twist to it.
An animal rights activist to the core, Vegan Queen V spins the traditional Christmas song around a bit and asks her audience to kindly leave animals off their plates this time around.
“We need to share our kindness and compassion with others more than ever now. Why not extend that gift to our non-human brothers and sisters.” – from this post
Life and this whole existence is about adapting and not being afraid of exploring new things. Why not try a vegan night this holiday season?
Music, environmental protection, animal rights and, belly dancing. These are some of the things Inanna brings to the world on a daily basis. Now the singer and activist has released a music video to ‘The Machine’, off of her recently released album, ‘Acrotopia‘.
The mostly black and white video shows Inanna weaving through factory machines, and dubious-looking workers, in a blood-red colored dress, all the while conveying a message about the rights of animals.
We can all have different opinions about eating other animals but there are sensible, ethical ways of doing things and then there is factory farming. The latter is nothing but torture and horror that even causes trauma to the workers/murderers not to mention the environmental effects such as deforestation, pollution, and the decline of smaller farms and rural communities.
“I firmly believe that all forms of art have an incredible capacity to drive change and create awareness, even about difficult issues such as animal exploitation. This video, inspired by some of my favorite movies of the silent era, wants to be an allegorical representation of the treatment of animals in factory farms and forests burnt by human activity. It is a dark video for a dark and emotional song, but it also includes a message of hope and a colorful fragment where we can catch a glimpse of a possible future where humans and animals live and thrive together. Both song and video want to witness what happens, but they also want to celebrate life and individuality of all Earthlings”
Inanna is one of many voices that stand up for those without a voice. Check out her video below and more of her music and work via her webpage, inannamusic.com.
The first single to come from the house of Jueves, Mexico’s first record label founded and run by women, is a soft-sounding, powerful single that focuses on the liberation and independence of all women.
The goal of the label, founded by Leiden and Adryana Marroquín, is to show the world the music created by Latin American women and be a force that empowers women and gives them an opportunity to publish their music.
Besides the before mentioned creators of the label, the women that participate in the song, titled Bruja, are Ximbo, Michelle Anzo, Lúa Jenn, Tyna Ros, Fernanda Elío among others. It is fitting that the first single is a collaboration between all the women represented by the record label.
