Venice, California is a hotbed of music, spirituality, culture, and historically a spawning ground for such Rock Gods as Jim Morrison and The Doors. It is in this metaphysical setting that the consciousness-expanding Hip Hop band known as the Luminaries have been born. With a range of sounds spanning from classic, feel-good boom-bap, to neo-soul mashed with super-charged funk-rock, the Luminaries cover the full spectrum of light and frequency. It's is not simply good tunes that gets the crowd hyped off this live rap act, the 3 MCs perform with a tight group of instrumentalists to accompany their positive message. The outcome is that audiences are left feeling empowered, inspired, and filled with a sense of sheer love as they walk away from this ecstatic experience.
The band sees their role as more than just musicians, but messengers of hope - true hope - as they live a life of service, each having played the role of teacher, social worker, activist and other human instruments of positive change in the world. From working with homeless youth to defending the nation's largest urban community farm, The South Central Farm, these boys have earned their stripes. Yes, the Luminaries are "here to serve", and do so through their music and inspirational live performance that leaves an audience rejuvenated from the soul down to the cellular level.
Luminaries are no strangers to a large audience. Over the past couple years they have played around the festival circuit with such grand concert events as Harmony Festival, Lightning in a Bottle, and Earthdance, sharing the stage with some of the hottest acts of the moment, including K 'Naan, The Glitch Mob, Matisyahu and Michael Franti and Spearhead, as well as time-tested vets like The Teacha, KRS-ONE, STS9 and even India Arie.
Luminaries just release their highly anticipated debut album appropriately titled "One". The first single "Be The Change" featurures acoustic soul man and soon-to-be-household-name Trevor Hall on vocals. These good brothers are all-in and awe-inspiring, with each song title a mantra to live by: "Show The World", "Everything is One", "Peace", "Only Love", "YES" and the list goes on. Also on the roster is pioneering wordsmith Myka Nyne (of Freestyle Fellowship and Project Blowed lore) Ghanaian Reggae legend, Rocky Dawuni, lead MC of Jurassic 5, Chali 2na, & more!
As humanity experiences a shift in consciousness, economics, and spirituality, we are redefining the ways we treat one another, and our Mother Earth. While we overcome the wars outside of ourselves, by finding the peace in our hearts, the Luminaries offer a beacon of hope with their music that inspires us simply to love. They welcome you to join the Luminous Movement, while reminding us "Peace Worldwide Starts From Inside." When Luminaries come to your town be prepared to put your "L" in the sky and remember, you are the light!
New Reb is not just music...
...it's a movement of people who want to better themselves for the sake of the planet, the universe. A movement to help people gain consciousness, and awareness of whats going on around them.
