Charity Album Release: Open Arms Project - Reggae Can Help!!!
Even though the subject is not present in everyday media anymore, the fight for survival on the Mediterranean Sea is still on. Still, thousands of men, women and children cross the waters to reach Europe, in search for a better life, a life in dignity. These refugees are often pent-up in small boats, not fit for long travels or for holding such big amounts of people, and are thus prone to overturn. And sometimes, it's only because organisations such as Proactiva Open Arms are there to help that lives are saved!
To inform the public about these efforts and support their mission by raising funds, a new charity album called Reggae Can Help!!! has been released on September 2, 2018. Initiated by Ras Kuko from Madrid, Spain, the album was realized in collaboration with international artists such as Warrior King, Skarra Mucci, Emeterians, Lasai, Little Pepe, Raphael, Quino (from Big Mountain) and Apache. "All these artists have written their own versions on the two riddims produced by Ras Kuko for this record, Ocean Riddim and Open Arms Riddim, in collaboration with several musicians including Tomas "Dub T" (Czech Republic), Moussa Thiandoume (Senegal) and Jonay Mesa and Felipe Hernández (Canary Islands).
The voices were mixed at the Estudio 9 (Tenerife) and Syrix got busy of the mixing and mastering at the Irie Vibrations Studio (Austria).", the official press release further informs us. The album Open Arms Project - Reggae Can Help!!! is available on all digital platforms, so make sure you get your copy! All proceeds from this project will be donated to Proactiva Open Arms.
