‘Humans’ Celebrates International Day for Tolerance
Yaksta’s recent song ‘Humans’ celebrates the important message of International Day of Tolerance #TrendHumans
“Tolerance is respect, acceptance and appreciation of the rich diversity of our world’s cultures, our forms of expression and ways of being human.”
UNESCO’s 1995 Declaration of Principles on Tolerance
The International Day for Tolerance (#InternationalDayForTolerance) recognises and advocates for universal human rights and freedom for all; and is celebrated annually on 16 November. People are naturally diverse, and The International Day for Tolerance celebrates the rich variety of cultures that arise across the world. It condemns all forms of violence and promotes peace and respect amongst all nations, a message which is prevalent in Yaksta’s new song, ‘Humans’.
‘Humans’ is inspired by the global events that have dominated 2020. Yaksta explores themes of corruption, isolation and devastation as a result of war, disease and human greed. Released via record label Runabeat Music, ‘Humans’ is available to stream on all platforms and has already gained significant traction and support worldwide. Interact with Yaksta and the track online by using the hashtag #TrendHumans.
Speaking about the inspiration behind writing ‘Humans,’ Yaksta says:
“These are the words that we are afraid to utter in times like these… ‘Humans’ is a commandment of life itself that speaks volumes of greed and selfish desires.”
Yaksta is a strong believer in peace, respect and non-violence towards others and the planet. ‘Humans’ is his personal plea to mankind and serves as an effective soundtrack to The International Day for Tolerance.
Following in the footsteps of artists such as Bob Marley and Taurus Riley, Yaksta, also known as Bushlawd, conforms to the traditional reggae ideals of standing up for what you believe in, fighting against injustice and challenging the corrupt ideologies of those in power.
The cover art and music video for ‘Humans’ both reflect the message conveyed in the lyrics and the message promoted through the International Day for Tolerance. Throughout the song Yaskta narrates Earth’s feelings, stating: ‘She weeps: “ahh, help me jah jah.”’ The cover art cleverly portrays this image, showing a human in medical gear (and the now common face mask) using a scalpel to carve up the Earth whilst the other planets look on, weeping. The music video builds upon this message by featuring powerful images taken during the events of 2020, such as the Black Lives Matter demonstrations, the Coronavirus Pandemic and the overexploitation of natural resources. Tolerance is at the heart of the message of ‘Humans’ and Yaksta hopes that his listeners will learn the importance of love and respect for all.
