“We’re bringing a message to the world in celebration of the human rights instrument, the “Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples,” because music does make a difference.”

- Tonya Gonnella Frichner, North American Regional Representative to the United Nations Permanent Forum On Indigenous Issues

“The guitar, vocals and songs of Robby Romero boasts a powerful vocal style that treat sensitive matters of spirituality with firm certainty.”

- Joel Selvin, San Francisco Chronicle

“Your musical talent and leadership in the Native American community will undoubtedly help commemorate the United Nations adoption of the Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples for years to come. It was very thoughtful of you to include me in the celebration of this historic occasion.”

- Nancy Pelosi, Speaker of the House

“Painting The World” celebrates the historical adoption of the United Nations’ “Declaration on The Rights of Indigenous Peoples”, a declaration that underwent the longest period of debate and negotiation of any other international human rights instrument in United Nations history. Featuring Indigenous artists from around the world, this new limited edition release bridges the gap between Indigenous Peoples, human rights, and the environment.

All Our Colors

Music & Lyrics by Robby Romero

a chance for love draws near
we have nothing left to fear

spirits whispering in your mind
i for i has only left us blind

all our colors paint the world
all our colors paint the world

as darkness falls along the shore
beware the leader whose art is war

all our colors paint the world
all our colors paint the world

we are part of the earth
the earth is part of us
we are children of creation
we are Indigenous

prophecies etched in blood and stone
our children reap what's been sown
wanna be connected embrace the land
life is sacred where we stand

all our colors paint the world
all our colors paint the world

all our colors paint the world
all our colors paint the world

we are children of creation
we are Indigenous

WHO'S GONNA SAVE YOU

Music and Lyrics by Robby Romero and Steve Addabbo

we touched down in crescent city
jazz blues and me
oceans rising higher and higher
as the arctic melts into the sea
gathering clouds surround us
in poverty of the rich man's greed

no time to point a finger
we got to face reality

who's gonna save you
who'll take the risk
who's gonna save you
from all this

all alone in the forest
with the last standing tree
clear cut and sold to the highest bidder
now what will our children breathe

were spinning out of balance
we've got to face reality

who's gonna save you
who'll take the risk
who's gonna save you
from all this

winds howl across the desert
where dammed rivers flowed free
no water to drink or bathe in
no escaping from disease
this change in the weather
will burn us then will freeze

there's a point of no return
we've got to face reality

who's gonna save you
who'll take the risk
who's gonna save you
from all this

who's gonna save you
who'll take the risk
who's gonna save you
from all this

HOPE
