About Us


Shot in 7 countries featuring 20 musicians, ‘Radiate’ is a live collaborate music video/film for Standing Rock. Produced by the Sailing conductors Ben Bart and Hannes Hafenklang from Germany who I met in Trinidad in 2014 after writing ‘Radiate’ during an Atlantic crossing. We have since been traveling the globe together recording ‘Radiate’, and have dedicated it to those standing in solidarity against the Dakota Access Pipeline in North Dakota. Go to www.jackmantisband.com and click the ‘STAND WITH STANDING ROCK’ icon to download the song – All proceeds go to Standing Rock and its water protectors. “Your fate is what you create”.
