Tonic Records are proud to announce a new Buckman Coe album, Malama Ka ‘Aina,which is set for release on September 25. To celebrate we are launching the first video from Malama Ka ‘Aina. Check it out below.
Malama Ka ‘Aina, which translates to ‘respect the land’ in Hawai’ian, is a collection of songs, recorded with Adham Shaikh and Jason Kechely, that follows the journey of humankind’s global and cultural waking up to their responsibilities. It is a continuation of Buckman’s innovative explorations of genres, bringing together progressive forms of soul, folk and reggae. His inspiration continues to come from his experiences studying the ecological and social effects of globalization; his work as a yogi, mental health worker and social citizen. While his music is compared to folks such as Michael Franti, Ben Harper and Jeff Buckley and informed by the spirits of Bob Marley, Marvin Gaye and John Lennon; Buckman Coe is a force of positive inspiration in his own right, using his voice and music to bring more beauty into the world.
