Culture of Peace 0022: The Soul of an Anti-War Song

Culture of Peace Cover

Today’s guest is musician Zama Rripa! Like the guest on last week’s episode, Zama is another libertarian songwriter. However, I think you’ll agree his work is of a distinctly different flavor.

It’s always a pleasure to come across someone who has reconciled libertarianism with his right brain and his left. The songwriting on display on Zama’s album, American Soul, shows a confidence with the economic material. But beyond that, it also shows a willingness to let the musical side take over; to go where the music takes him.

He manages to be solemn for the fantastic anti-war song “Blowback,” but then to show us the simple joy of life in “Live Your Thing.” I greatly enjoy the music, and I hope you will too.

If we want to change the culture–the explicit goal of this podcast–we need to support the great artists who are willing to help us get there. They are, in some ways, our torchbearers.
