The Tunes of Defiance – by Musical Warriors


Musical Warriors is an open group comprising of Goan music performers and activists, who love Goa in all its natural beauty, social harmony and loving hospitality. The group has come together to promote the idea of preservation of our centuries-old tradition of peaceful living in harmony with nature, ecology and environment, which is, sadly, fast being destroyed. The group has conducted many street performances all over Goa creating awareness of various issues such as land grabbing by the state authorities in Mopa and Tuem for government projects and opposition towards Raheja housing project in Carmona and golf course in Tiracol. Recently, the senior-most member of the group, Father Bismarque was found murdered in his village after remaining missing for two days. The group will be presenting a glimpse of their brand of street music followed by a video presentation of the songs of Father Bismarque. At the end, they will be an open interactive session between the performers and the audience.
