April 4, 2016

SayReal is a reggae-folk fusion band, fronted by vocalist and multi-instrumentalist Naia Kete, that’s based in L.A. where they make soulful rock music for the revolutionary soul. Today, we’re premiering the video for their single “Frederick’s Song (Freedom)”, a visionary’s anthem co-written by academic Richard Fink and based on the life, message, and teachings of Abolitionist Frederick Douglass. “It reflects the social, political and economic freedoms we all must remember to relentlessly fight for. With the beat of a revolutionary hymn and an infectious chorus, this is an anthem that inspires us all to never idly stand by while there is injustice,” the band tells AFROPUNK.
