Protest music


As the protest movement takes root, one of the things I’ve been wondering is: Where is the protest music? The 1930s had its Woody Guthrie. The 1960s had its Bob Dylan.

Well, here it comes. I understand that he ambushed President Obama with this song at a summit meeting in Hawaii on Nov. 12.

    I know Makana and felt overjoyed when I learned he had done this. It is a wonderful example of a progressive person being true to his beliefs and sending a message through peaceful means.

    The following link is to a short clip of the performance and his very brief commentary. His statement that he decided to do this precisely because he was fearful is true to his personal philosophy.

    I suggest you “friend” him on Facebook, as his posts there are quite thought provoking.
