Kore Ionz with Geo from Blue Scholars

Oct 19, 2012, 9:00 PM - 12:00 AM
University Center, Dining Room

A concert serves as the sequel to the diversity discussion led by Rod Labrador, Ph.D. of UH-Manoa and Geo of the Blue Scholars at 2:00 p.m. Students celebrate the themes of social awareness through music with the same messages by Geo and Kore Ionz.

Kore Ionz is a reggae band from Seattle. Their main goal with their music “is to give people a glimpse of the truth in a way such that it just might uplift them to go do something about it” (Daniel Pak, lead singer). Kore Ionz has shared the stage with The Wailers, Steel Pulse, Katchafire, J Boog, and more. After giving a great performance on campus two years ago, Kore Ionz is back to take the stage along with Geo from Blue Scholars.

Blue Scholars MC Geo (a.ka. Prometheus Brown) will be performing along with Kore Ionz. Blue Scholars call their music, “cinema art rap” and actively contribute to the global community of artists and freethinkers. “Music has broken down the superficial barriers that would otherwise keep us apart” (Sabzi). Blue Scholars have performed with Kanye West, Nas, Common, De La Soul, and more. Back on the Pacific University for a second time, Geo will take the stage alongside Kore Ionz.
