New Blue King Brown track highlights West Papua's struggle

Sunday, November 2, 2014

Australian urban roots and reggae band Blue King Brown have joined musicians, artists and writers using their artistic talents to expose the political fraud and brutal genocide that the Indonesian government has committed against the West Papuan people.

On their new song and video “All Nations”, Blue King Brown frontwoman Natalie Pa'apa'a said: “We’ve chosen to give freewestpapua.org the exclusive premiere of our new video to help draw attention to the ongoing need for dialogue and action in support of self determination and freedom for West Papua

“‘All Nations’ at its core is about people power. Calling out to All People from All Nations to recognise their power and reclaim it, use it, assert it in these times of shifting consciousness, a time of discontent with the current world system and paradigm.

“People all around are waking up to the reality of current world culture and it’s relentless assault on our environment, our freedoms and our higher intelligence.”

Pa'apa'a said the song was dedicated “to those who fight daily for justice, they’re the ones inspiring and making real change”.

“All nations” is the second single off the band's new highly anticipated third album, Born Free, to be released on November 7. The film clip was shot in the jungle and streets of Vanuatu and Melbourne.

The song is a global call to non-violent unity, but in the video, the band chose to draw attention to the struggle of the West Papuan people.
