Fresh, homegrown music from Gabe Dominguez' SHAKE YOUR PEACE! project. Originally designed as a theatrical pep rally to excite and engage youth in climate change, Gabe and friends had planned to take the show to schools last year. You can hear it now. To download the album, click here.
"SHAKE YOUR PEACE! is a Chicanx/ Punjabi performance artist howling out of Goshute, Ute, and Eastern Shoshone land (Salt Lake City, Utah) who's created a new music style called "whup." Whup is a rock & roll hybridization of: Afro-Latin and Caribbean rhythms, bluegrass fiddling, gospel choir, marching band percussion, and ecotopian perspectives. Simply put: it's social/eco-justice music you can dance to; a defiant celebration of human cultural diversity and the wilderness.
Beyond the music, SHAKE YOUR PEACE! is known for incorporating environmental activism into both tours and live shows (a principle he refers to as "harmony onstage/ harmony offstage"). This passion for "harmony offstage" is best exemplified by SHAKE YOUR PEACE!'s many experiments with touring by bicycle, and by foot (hauling drums, amplifiers, and guitars all without the help of a tour van), and amplifying concerts with a bicycle-powered sound system (pedaled by volunteers from the audience). In 2007, these experiments inspired SHAKE YOUR PEACE! to co-found the award-winning Bicycle Music Festival in San Francisco, heralded by the press as: "the greenest music festival ever conceived." The festival, as an open-source idea, has since inspired BMF-style events around the world, from South Korea, to Uruguay, to Canada, all produced by autonomous groups of volunteers.
