Satyagraha, is loosely translated as “insistence on truth” or “holding on to truth” (satya “truth”; agraha “insistence”), a particular philosophy and practice within the nonviolent resistance or civil resistance. The term satyagraha was coined and developed by Mahatma Gandhi. He deployed satyagraha in the Indian independence movement. Satyagraha theory influenced Nelson Mandela’s struggle in South Africa under apartheid, Martin Luther King, Jr.’s campaigns during the Civil Rights Movement in the United States, and many other social justice and similar movements.

We just played “Perception Deception.” For this song Sterling created a new music video in collaboration with Robin Rosenberger and Moondrop Circus. The video will be part of the Pledge Music Campaign.
