Luminaries

Lu·mi·nary: noun 1. a body or conduit that gives light 2. a person who is an inspiration to others

Luminaries are a 7 piece conscious hip hop band from Venice, CA that are here to shine the light, and serve the world through their music. They bring such an amazing live show filled with messages of peace, love, and unity that inspire audiences to dance and feel empowered!

They have performed alongside such renowned artist as Michael Franti, India Arie, Matisyahu, K’naan, and always leave the fans motivated to “Be the Change.” With songs titled “Show the World”, “Find a Way”, “Yes”, “Peace”, and “Only Love”, it’s no wonder they keep getting booked at some of the biggest festivals in the world!

This is my favorite song: Peace Worldwide Starts From Inside. This very song inspired me to create Healers Worldwide. Thank you!!

The group formed in 2006 after MCs J Brave, and Freewill started working together as counselors at a non-profit with homeless & at-risk youth in Hollywood, CA. While doing activism at the South Central Farm, a once thriving urban garden, they connected with fellow MC, Amore One. From this desire to help their community, they began the intention that would guide and shape the mission of the group. Under the tutelage of Freestyle Fellowship founder Myka 9, they would refine their skills, and create their new path of service to the world through music.

After performing shows as a group of vocalists to tracks, they attracted the attention of some of the best local musicians in the vibrant Venice Beach community. With Konscious Krieger on keyboards, Eric SoulLivin’ on guitar, Ben Jammin’ on bass and Ed “Dreams” Dixon on drums, Luminaries have since created a sound that combines the best elements of hip-hop, funk and rock.

Luminaries have toured the West Coast in their colorful bio-diesel powered tour bus, raising smiles on faces everywhere they go. When returning home they set up shop at their own recording facility, Konscious Studios in Santa Monica, where they currently are working on their up-coming album. As advocates of sustainability, green lifestyles, and vegetarianism, Luminaries music has become the soundtrack for an evolving world. Partnering with such companies as Eco-Useable, and Autonomie Project, they offer fans their own line of re-usuable metallic water bottles, and vegan fair trade shoes.

As humanity experiences a shift in consciousness, economics, and spirituality, we are redefining the ways we treat one another, and the earth.While we overcome the wars outside of ourselves, by finding the peace in our hearts, the Luminaries offer a beacon of hope with their music that inspires us simply to love. They welcome you to join the Luminous Movement, while reminding us “Peace Worldwide Starts From Inside.” When Luminaries come to your town be prepared to put your “L” in the sky and remember, you are the light!

Peace

I say peace when I jump on a beat
I say peace when I’m walking the street
I say peace when the sun’s in the east
I say peace when I move with the fleet
I say peace when I’m facing the beast
I say peace when I’m taking u deep
I say peace cause I know I’m complete
I say peace
I say peace

P is for the people
E is for the essence
A is for the answers that we get from God’s questions
C is for the conscious
E is for the Earth

So every body gotta stand up and find your worth
A world divided will often fall to disease and violence
gotta get through the shame and the silence so we can be united

Only the righteous will overcome and become enlightened
living ya life
loving ya self
so let the light in

One love, One blood, and One Heart
One people, One World, and One God
We gotta come together united for one cause
Put ya hands up in the air for peace!
(2X)

Peace world wide starts from inside
We gotta find a better way that we can be
Peace world wide starts from inside
Go head and let cha mind body soul be free
Peace world wide starts from inside
the answer and solution always starts with me
Peace world wide starts from inside
If you want to save the world,
BE THE CHANGE YOU WANNA SEE!

I gotta peace of mind
I gotta piece of paper
about to make a perfect rhyme that the world will savor
Counting stars gazing past 2011
To 2012 infinity, 777
I hope we make it to heaven on earth
to see my bredren
come back, resurrected
Bob Marley the Legend
It’s One love
me and my people are all connected
for world peace
we gotta have a common collective

Martin taught us the lessons
of how we should be respected and
Gandhi truly embodied the non-violent perspective

Global community unity maybe you and me
can sit down build upon love cuz it’s what we need
let’s get to farming and feeding the people starving
across the whole planet
what’s going on is alarming
sustainable living
we don’t need their provisions
we can grow it pick it an eat it
that’s the world I envision
on a mission for peace
all around the world

Like Chase paint a face
make a beautiful mural
Africa needs peace
Europe and South America
Asia and Australia do you believe in miracles?
Cuz it can happen if everybody would tap it
to all the love in their hearts
and every body started laughing
time for action
no time to explain
it takes 6 billion willing
People to change

Now imagine if the words of John Lennon would come alive
and every body in the world started to unite
realize
it aint far fetched we can do it
come together for a cause do it with the music
use it take time and pursue it
dreams and aspirations are all up to you
cuz everybody in the world wanna get free
and every body in the world, wants peace!

One love, One blood, and One Heart
One people, One World, and One God
We gotta come together united for one cause
Put ya hands up in the air for peace!
(2X)

Peace world wide starts from inside
We gotta find a better way that we can be
Peace world wide starts from inside
Go head and let cha mind body soul be free
Peace world wide starts from inside
the answer and solution always starts with me
Peace world wide starts from inside
If you want to save the world,
BE THE CHANGE YOU WANNA SEE!

One love, One blood, and One Heart
One people, One World, and One God
We gotta come together united for one cause
Put ya hands up in the air for peace!
(2X)

Outro: Peace worldwide starts from inside (7X)
Put ya hands up in the air for peace!
