Natty Presents ‘Release the Fear: The Sacred Journey’
A vivid and powerful docu-journey following a group of accomplished musicians, activists and creatives as they trek deep within the Amazon rainforest in search of a spiritual awakening.
Guided by Roots singer-songwriter Natty, ‘Release the Fear: The Sacred Journey’ chronicles the evolution of spoken word artist Shareefa Energy, DJ Snuff, and filmmaker/emcee Apex Zero as they are physically and mentally pushed to their limits by the harsh terrain of the Amazon. They participate in ancient healing practices of the indigenous Piaroa people, embracing the traditional Yopo ceremony, travel to sacred ancestral sites and journey through a stunning landscape of pink beaches, red waterfalls and revered mountains.
As the group escape hectic city life, existential crises and overcome trauma, ‘Release the Fear: The Sacred Journey’ offers a unique and visceral insight into the restorative properties and power within music and nature.
Following the release of Natty’s album ‘Release the Fear’, and his intention to build a worldwide healing movement of love, the docu-journey is an extension of his commitment to evoke deeper awakening through art and action, exploring what it means to be spiritually wealthy, and confronting your deepest fears and trauma.
