Embracing decentralization, the forest brings Web3 and Web2 communities together to support the cloning and preservation of endangered Sequoia Tree genetics.
Within the Shiba Sequoia Forest, our purpose is to harness the power of music as a unifying force, rallying communities and advocating for safeguarding Sequoia trees. This endeavor is pursued through creating and selling digital assets showcasing music inspired by these majestic giants. Our primary goal is to bolster conservation initiatives and enlighten individuals about the criticality of preserving these natural marvels for posterity. We firmly believe that leveraging the distinctive attributes of NFTs, coupled with the artistic brilliance of musicians, can effect substantial change in the battle to protect the genetic legacy of Giant Sequoia trees, while instilling a newfound commitment to environmental stewardship in generations to come. At the heart of the Shiba Sequoia Forest lie three foundational pillars: Community, dedicated to fostering a sense of belonging and togetherness; Tree Preservation, committed to safeguarding the natural splendor of the Sequoia trees; and Independent Art and Music, championing creativity and self-expression. These pillars stand tall upon the bedrock of the decentralized realm forged by Shib, creating a resilient and thriving ecosystem.
Web3 and blockchain technologies usher in a new era of music.

Joe Rian (Ryan) was adopted as an infant and raised in Rock Falls, Illinois. He sings tavern songs, beer-soaked and road-worn.
Rian moved out of the Midwest after flunking out of college and scraped by working multiple minimum wage grinds. His main gig was sweating away at a gold and silver refinery on the west side of Phoenix, AZ. Other jobs included telemarketing, pouring concrete, releasing and then chasing hot air balloons, moving appliances, and a very short stint collecting outstanding debts for characters you might find on a once-popular TV series.
In 1989, he won an American Stratocaster signed by Jeff Beck and Stevie Ray Vaughan via a radio contest. Then, pure chance found him at the last ever SRV concert.
After moving to Chicago, he worked at Buddy Guy’s Legends and busked the streets of the “Windy City.”
While Joe Rian is not a strict Bluesman, he is a songwriter who likes to stir the sounds of Roots, Country and Folk into a nice pot of musical soup. His songs are best consumed in your local tavern.

My name is Krp (K Ramachandra Prabhu), and I am a musician from Bharat or India. I have been learning Indian Classical Music for the past 6-8 years and it has been quite a journey. Having grown up listening to Western music, I now try to bridge the East and the West in my music. My country is a melting pot of cultures and languages. A beautiful Kaleidoscope of classical dance forms, varying styles of music, more than 100 unique languages, and a billion people. The English education my dad put me through ensured that the general fabric of backstreet boys, Linkin Park & John Mayer was always on wherever I went. The shift in the way I sense and create music however happened when I was in my mid-twenties, as I went deeper into Yoga and meditation. I hope the melodies you hear from me delight you as the sun rises and keeps you company when the sun sets.
