The recently released track 'Mother of Song' feat Iber Jose Gomez has a whole heap of story to go with it. The serenity and peace that Iber plays the Marimba with is not a reflection of a living in external paradise, quite the opposite. The video of El Gran Latido -Sound System playing 'Mother of Song' in this post is part of a protest that happened recently in Bogota Colombia. The protest was held by prominent community leaders, social activists, human rights campaigners, tired of the relentless conflict in Colombia, many of them from north of Cauca in the Pacific Coast, a region of Colombia where Iber was born. The protestors travelled to Bogota to shine light on the atrocities that the right wing paramilitary forces are carrying out against their people. Since the so called 'peace agreement' was made between the Colombian government and the Guerrilla forces in 2018, the Guerrilla forces moved away from the territories they were protecting to take a role in politics. However despite the peace agreement, the paramilitary occupied these territories and in the last year alone have killed over 200 community leaders and human rights activists. These so called 'illegal' paramilitary armies are funded by the Colombian government, by big corporations and by the USA. The news channels glorify the paramilitaries and have daily celebrations in their reports when they kill one of the guerrilla soldiers. Recently a paramilitary assassination attempt was carried out on Francia Marquez, a prominent human-rights and environmental activist, in 2018 Marquez was awarded the Goldman Environmental Prize for her work to stop illegal gold mining in her community. This is just but one example of how the big corporations are using the paramilitaries to silence people who are willing to stand up for basic human rights. As you can see this is always more than just music! Reggae music, telling the half that’s never been told! A Luta Continua, equal rights and justice for all. White supremacy must be eradicated from the face of this earth.
