1.) GOING TO THE BEACH
“The Sound of Sunshine” by Michael Franti & Spearhead
Michael Franti, of the reggae fusion band Michael Franti & Spearhead, is quite the environmental activist. This vegan musician organized of the Power to the Peaceful Festival in 2010 where music merged with eco villages, green organizations, healing sanctuaries, and green food vendors. Additionally, recycling was encouraged everywhere on the festival site, no bottled water was sold, and his tour bus ran on biodiesel. Though none of his songs directly reference his passion for the environment, his music is very relaxing and it perfectly complements the feeling of soaking in the sun at the beach.
