Sometimes it's just 'in the air!'. Today is 'Food Revolution Day', Jamie Oliver's led food awareness campaign for young people. Tomorrow it's 'March on Monsanto', a campaign that originated in the US but now going global on the issues of GM (genetically modified) foods.
AOA (Astronauts of Antiquity), along with artists such as Neil Young are at the forefront of the March Against Monsanto with their new single, ‘Paradise’, from their upcoming EP, Beyond The Maze. Tieing in with the core message of ‘Paradise’, AOA’s vocalist, India (Best Female Vocalist, Detroit Music Awards), offers up a distinctly swaggering vocal style with intriguing melodies that are hard to ignore. B. Rhyan(Bernie Worrell) throws dark, haunting guitars over Ivica’s (Sony-Epic) arrangement of electronic soundscapes sending tension and atmosphere throughout the track. ‘Paradise’ highlights the many issues with Monsanto’s genetically-modified food that has been stated in scientific studies to cause health and environmental problems.
The discussion around Monsanto is a lively one with AOA's video adding a creative voice to the conversation. GMOs remain a hot topic of debate for people everywhere. The March Against Monsanto movement continues to grow and has now garnered over a million followers on Facebook.
