So what happens when members of Watussi, King Tide, The Subterraneans, The Melbourne Ska Orchestra and more come together to play? These musicians bring their mix of tastes and cultures to meet on common ground and with their collective love of reggae and a firm handle on the street they create the sounds synonymous with a small Caribbean island and set out to play it across the largest island in the world.
The Protesters' songs espouse a strong commitment to social and environmental justice. Brown’s trenchant creations are offset by smooth and soulful old school reggae riddims, fuelled by classy arrangements featuring a full complement of horns. Pat Powell, delivers each message with urbanity, belying the scarcely concealed contempt between the lines.
Their music can be described as healing, enlightening or even cathartic, either way the positive vibrations of The Protesters reach out to all.
