Juneteenth (June 19) is on the horizon and to honor this critical event in history when U.S. slaves were emancipated, Bob Marley’s Tuff Gong International and Aya World Productions are releasing a Black family music album: All One Tribe.
This 25-track project celebrates the unique perspectives of Black voices from 24 family music artists spanning the nation. All One Tribe encompasses all music genres, addressing topics related to STEM, Black history, vaccinations, and more. The album aims to expand public awareness of diversity and representation in kids’ music and songwriting, while giving young people and families permission to live out loud and celebrate their individuality.
Some titles on the tracklist include “I Believe” by Shine & The Moonbeams, “I Am the Future of Black History” by Culture Queen, “March Together” by Aaron Nigel Smith, and “Respect Everybody” by Groovy Nate. The artists’ collective single, “One Tribe,” brings them all together for a rich expression of universality and belonging as they sing: “We are one love, one light, one heart, one mind, one tribe for life.”
All One Tribe will release on June 19 on all streaming platforms. Pre-orders will be available on May 25 in honor of George Floyd and a portion of album proceeds will go towards a nonprofit that supports Black lives.
Families can tune in to a special livestream album release event on June 11 on the Tuff Gong International Facebook and YouTube pages. The event will feature live performances, music video features, and interviews with artists from the album.
