Shramana, an emergent music collective started in 2009 by Reggie Herbert who identifies himself as an anarchist; even though not all members in the band assume that position.
Most of their songs are about climate change and human impacts on the natural world, as well as colonialism an the loss life's meaning in our spectacle society.  In their own words: " Our meaning statement for this album is the humans of the world have lost sight of their belonging to the animal kingdom due to the myth of human superiority that has corrupted their ability to reason. This myth is now self-sustaining and has permeated the fabric of their self-identity. Not knowing they belong to the Mother, they now seek to destroy that which birthed them."
