Immerse into Nya Bloom’s sonic universe through a simple text: send “Bloom” to 818.392.8565, and catapult into the mystery of this lush experience through a rabbit hole of visuals and sound. A musical project calling on the masses comes to a head in Exhale, the full release of Nya Bloom’s 4-part debut EP.
Nya Bloom is petitioning to create The Declaration of Unity. After a conversation between friends, the creative began paying attention to the moments and ideas we repeatedly celebrate as a country, noticing there is no holiday more American than Independence Day. “This document, literally and symbolically, marks the birth of our country. It serves as the core expression of what it means to be American or what it was intended to be. We think so independently that we have become separate from each other, our community and environment…it has evolved into divisiveness. It’s a beautiful document that has inspired revolutions not only in America, but around the world. An idea clearly expressed on piece of paper changed the world, speaking to generations of people who, out of all the endless things to believe or not believe, found a few truths to be self evident, everyone has a right to life liberty and pursuit of happiness. It shaped and continues to shape our consciousness. As a society, we keep celebrating and programming ourselves for ‘independence,’ and that is great, but we are the UNITED States of America, and we seem to never celebrate that. I would feel foolish not at least trying to use the tool of the internet to show how most of the country is not on the extremes, and we should be focusing on uniting for the common cause. Not blaming each other. Our politics are ruled by memes an misinformation, I hope having this document out in the world, government approved or not, it spreads like all the memes and videos we so easily spread. I hope we can agree on the truths our country was founded on and use that as our mutual baseline of communication moving forward.”
In hopes of enacting serious change, Nya Bloom created his Declaration of Unity for a world in crisis amidst a pandemic, economic shutdown, political and civil unrest, natural disasters, and more. It’s time to unite, and stop pointing fingers in blame. It’s time for a new global conversation: one that addresses the actual issues and is focused and designed to bolster unity and respect instead of competition. Now more than ever, we need to take matters into our own hands. We cannot wait any longer for our leaders to unify us, we must do it ourselves.
“People who celebrate only their independence and never their unity live in constant contradiction to the very name and ideals set forth as the United States of America.” – Nya Bloom
