Happy Earth Day from our Conservation Music family here in Lesotho! Within minutes, the kids of Tlokoeng learned these words from the chorus of “Metsi Ya Rona” ("Our Water”), a song that tells the true stories of this village’s residents with regards to their relationship with water and the climate. 🎵“Our water, conserve our water!”🎵 About a month ago, much of Lesotho was welcomed to the rainy season, after many months of drought, by historically severe hailstorms, massive soil erosion, and flooding rivers that washed away people and cars. The role of water in Lesotho is complex, and this community is singing for the need to band together to keep Tlokoeng in a balanced position as their circumstances change. In the era of climate change, every day must become Earth Day… for the next generation, for the planet, for ourselves. 🎵🌍❤ #conservationmusic #K2K

The odds were in our favor on our first day of shooting at Theewaterskloof Dam. As the team prepared to embark into the dust bowl, we met a fellow filmmaker along side of the road. Luke Rafferty Visuals was also in the area to document the water crisis. We invited him to our shoot, and he immediately captured this drone shot as Gershan Lombard: KhoisanBoy.Man , Jack Mantis , and Chuma Preshy Mgcoyi walked into the dust. To see the full length clip, check out Webseries Episode 5, LIVE now on our YouTube and Facebook platforms. Also be on the look out for the #DayZero music video... we can’t wait to share the result.🎵🌍❤️ #conservationmusic #k2k

Amazing project.
a Stellar idea executed professionally by a group of awesome people. Conservation Music is a uniquely brilliant concept, and I believe you guys have come across a winning recipe. Thr...oughout Africa, one thing is abundantly clear: The Love of music and the emotional upliftment that it provides.
By introducing conservation, awareness and education within this already passionate subject, Conservation Music has managed to do what many have only contemplated. Bringing a vital change in mindset one village/one song at a time. This is where the true magic happens.
I am Happy to be part(even if its a tiny part) of your great vision.
Together, we will make a change.

We need music not only to dance in clubs, but to pass important messages. Something African societies have been doing before the arrival of European cultures...

Location shooting has begun here in the village of Tlokoeng, Lesotho! Our artists and crew trekked up a mountain to capture the hollowed out caves that the Batlokoa clan, and later King Moshoeshoe, once used for shelter. Today, these caves are used as kraals (corrals) by the local balisana (shepherds). At the end of the day, we stopped to admire the sunset over the vast expanse of wildflowers and villages below. This month’s leg of Expedition #K2K has proven to be uniquely exciting and incredibly grounding for all of us. We look forward to sharing this one of a kind experience with you!🎵🌍❤️ #conserverationmusic
