Conscious Music Network

Haki Sawa (Equal Rights)

Music has the power to influence people’s attitudes, for good or bad, depending on how it’s used. The Conscious Music Network is an ensemble of artists from different regions in Tanzania using their talents for the sake of educating and raising awareness on issues such as good governance, social and economic justice, human dignity, mining, poverty eradication and HIV/AIDS. Through the use of music we support artists in creating positive change in Tanzania and around the world.

Mother Mother

“Mother Mother” explores issues of gender, identity, patriarchy and environmentalism. It stems from the importance of connecting the underlying classism, racism and sexism which play a role in the exploitation of natural environments through greed, war and ignorance. Through music we can entice a reflection about who is in charge of making the decisions that affect the planet and who in turn is silenced. Music is a tool for social change through which we can challenge ourselves, identities and assumptions about reality.
