Why the Conscious Music Movement?
Because Consciousness in music, particularly urban music: Hip Hop and R&B, has been seriously eroded on the airwaves. Terrestrial radio has become heavily commercialized, with ownership of nearly all major stations in metropolitan areas across the nation owned by the “Big Two”: Cumulus Broadcasting or Clear Channel Broadcasting. Domination of music highlighting materialism and misogyny has left no room for those artists who make music about subjects of substance, be they politically, socially or spiritually conscious in nature. The Conscious Music Movement provides a tour and radio stations, with television and print media coverage soon to come, to provide an outlet for these artists of substance. We do not oppose mainstream Hip Hop, we simply look to restore the balance to Hip Hop, thus keeping it alive.
What is the Conscious Music Movement?
It is a well-organized movement of individuals directed by the Conscious Entertainment Network, a partnership comprised of individuals with well over a half century of combined experience in the music industry who have been dedicated to bringing consciousness to the masses through music for decades. Realizing they were all working toward a common goal, they decided to come together to create a movement to make a statement to people across America that Conscious Music is alive and well, and here to stay.
Who is the Conscious Music Movement?
The Conscious Music Movement is YOU: those of you who are interested enough in keeping conscious music alive that you do whatever you can to support it. However, the Conscious Music Movement was sparked by the principle partners of FreedomPath Network: Knowa, a/k/a Kemondie Patterson: a Grammy nominated emcee and music activist, and Adeeb Shabazz: an author and CEO and Founder of FreedomPath Radio.
When will the Conscious Music Movement Tour Begin?
The Conscious Music Movement Tour begins September 10th 2011 in Hampton, Virginia, and continues to venues across America through the rest of 2011. Check http://www.9thDynasty.webs.com for other dates and continue to check regularly as we update the list constantly.
