About the Album

“Blessed Unrest: a soundtrack for social change,” Zo Tobi’s debut EP, is a transformative journey into the heart of social change and spiritual revival.

“If you’re just starting to ‘wake up’ to the social and environmental crises in the world,” says Zo, “I want to give you inspiration to turn your passion into action… And if you’re already out there working to make a difference, I want this music to keep reminding you who you really are, and why you’re doing what you’re doing.”

“Blessed Unrest” was funded entirely through a groundswell of fan support, and is his first contribution of many to a greater soundtrack for social change. “We actually have the chance,” Zo shares, “to be the generation that starts rebuilding our society around a reverence for one another and the whole web of life. That’s an unbelievable privilege, and my hope is that this music celebrates and reminds us all of that.”
