DECAYING ART

 

Leading the militant Indiggnation band, Protoje reports for duty, re-establishing the standard for the decaying art of socially responsible, mentally stimulating lyricism.

Protoje headlines a stellar conscious music line-up at the Reggae Revival Concert at the Boardwalk Village on Saturday, May 20 from 6 p.m., - 2 a.m. The sultry songstress, Savana, is also set to grace the stage at Protoje's Reggae Revival concert.

"I like that am I a part of the Tmrw.Tday Culture Fest. It is a great initiative. I just want to do my part and make sure that all music is well represented, and I look forward to doing greater things with them in the future," said Protoje.

Teflon Zinc Fence is the festivals Official Dub Resident, and he will vibe alongside Yaadcore, live at various events at Tmrw.Tday.

Daytime activations will also offer a series of wellness programmes led by world-renowned instructors. Various practices of yoga, fitness classes, health and medicinal healing workshops, guided meditations and conscious lifestyle speakers will guide attendees through a transformative experience. Championed by international wellness ambassador and superfoods evangelist David Wolfe, self-care teacher, motivational speaker and Irie Soul Program co-director Gillian B., and conscious lifestyle coach, meditation guide and founder of Irie Soul, Stacy Chang-Christoforou, Tmrw.Tday's wellness offerings will provide a diverse selection of educational activities to cleanse the body, detoxify the mind, and heal the spirit.

Andrew Christoforou, managing partner of Tmrw.Tday, says "The most unique part about Tmrw.Tday culture fest is that its ultimate goal is to have people go within to better themselves and find true happiness ... The planet is at a very critical stage and we believe that you must take care of yourself first before you take action to better the world."
