Pomo/Keynan musician Ras K'dee has a new release called Cloudwriter available on iTunes for a great cause.
Ras K’dee has been putting it down for conscious Indigenous hip-hop for the last decade, bringing lessons of reality to his listeners on a solo tip and also with the collective, Audio Pharmacy.
In addition, he’s a founding member of SNAG Magazine, a progressive rag coming out of the Bay Area, Ras’ music is laced with awareness culture and Indigenous styles known so well from the California sun. Touching on issues of Indigenous struggles, Ras manages to turn it into medicine with his progressive style of music.
This new album, Cloudwriter, is laced with some banging rap beats, slower ballad type songs, reggae-funk and live instrumentation giving it a roots kind of feel. Perfect for summer weather.
The deepest part of this album release is the context in which Ras K’dee is making it available. The proceeds of album purchases will go towards a solar project on the Ha-bida Pomo Reservation in Northern California. This is a class act by a great musician with an awesome product.
