About Light Warriors:

Having been inspired by socially conscious music for decades, Erik Rabasca decided to quit his corporate job and commit to raising awareness about human rights issues through his art. By combining his love for free jazz, spirituality and reggae, Erik's upcoming album pushes boundaries and blends genre lines. With Erik's search to create a communal and progressive musical experience came Light Warriors.

The project began as a unifying force, using music as the primary and universal language that transcends clan, culture and nation. Light is what we all seek consciously or unconsciously, it’s the giver of life on earth and what the spirit channels for healing. In today’s onslaught of negativity and soul destruction, we need a Warrior mentality to remain positive and to continue seeking the lights of our lives.
