Rasta Rock Opera

The "Respect And Love Revolution" album will be released on November 27th, 2014 on the birthday of Jimi Hendrix on the new music platform, Songfi.com.

When great musicians collaborate amazing things happen. All of the musicians involved and listed injected their spirit into their performances. Exact parts were never written in advance, they were created by all of the players in session from the basic arrangements. This freedom of expression created truth in the music and a feeling of power, purpose, and soul.

What if Jimi Hendrix met Bob Marley and they made an album together? Unfortunately, that never happened. This fantasy collaboration however, inspired Stevie Marco, composer, producer, and guitarist of the Rasta Rock Opera, to undertake this project.

Stevie is supported by legendary performers and brilliant new talent and together they have created a modern day masterpiece. The Rasta Rock Opera is a true “Rock Opera” with Reggae, Hip Hop, and Jazz undercurrents. If you dig Bob Marley and Jimmy Hendrix, you will enjoy this original material which reflects influences from the entire musical spectrum.

The Rasta Rock Opera consists of 11 compositions with 21 musical movements that are bound together by the thread of emotion. The lyrics deliver a refined message of love and hope while offering answers to some of life’s most intriguing mysteries.

On Bob Marley's Birthday, Feb. 6th, 2014, the debut album of the Rasta Rock Opera titled "Respect and Love Revolution" drops!!

Here are the amazing musicians of the Rasta Rock Opera. Forty seven (47) of us came together to create music and lyrics for the world. All of the musicians and vocalists worked from basic arrangements, but the performances were improvisational and heartfelt and that gives this operatic score its power and soul. Be ready for an experience that will take you deep inside yourself as you digest this work of art. More info at http://RastaRock.com

The Rasta Rock Opera's debut album titled "Respect and Love Revolution" is available exclusively at http://SongFi.com. The red "Song Fi" trademark that you see here is the future of the music industry. The “Free Music Revolution”, with the consent of the artist, is the financial model of the future. The recording industry has financially abused the musician for far long and a new and robust reorganization of cash flow to the musician is introduced on the “Song Fi Music Platform”. The old school record companies and “pay for” download sites like iTunes will vanish from view when sponsors and advertisers create large pools of money for the unsigned recording artist based on free downloads within the http://SongFi.com website. When musicians and fans become part of a worldwide free music community, the vast number of members will draw billions of dollars in advertising and sponsorship revenues that will be distributed to the musicians of the world leaving the record companies where they belong, GONE.
