Rhythms Del Mundo Cuba

# Original Release Date: November 14, 2006
# Number of Discs: 1
# Label: Hip-O Records
# ASIN: B000J23416
#Producer(s):Kenny Young, the Berman Brothers


Rhythms del Mundo is a nonprofit collaborative album, which fuses an all-star cast of Cuban muscians including Ibrahim Ferrer and Omara Portuondo of the the Buena Vista Social Club with tracks from US, UK and Irish artists such as U2, Coldplay, Sting, Jack Johnson and Maroon 5 , Arctic Monkeys, Franz Ferdinand, Kaiser Chiefs and many others.

Background

Kenny Young, Founder and Trustee of APE, explains how the project emerged: “The project was sparked off by the devastating 2004 Indian Ocean earthquake. The idea came in to do a project with The Buena Vista Social Club to fuse their Latin sounds with Western artists and their familiar popular songs. The project evolved when more environmental disasters struck — the Asian Earthquakes and Hurricane Katrina. But the big picture was climate change. You can call these natural disasters but after all the research and scientific data, we know that we’re at least partly to blame for some of these disasters. Global warming is now in the news daily. If we don’t act in the time frame our experts give us, our grandchildren will curse us eternally.”

Thom Yorke comments, “We need a law, we need to have the Government put climate change in its place. If you leave industry to sort it out on a voluntary basis that’s never going to happen. So everybody, if they’ve got any concerns about climate, change has to register that concern with their Government officials because it’s the only way to go.”[1]

    Madre de Dios! Sagte ich doch, mit der Deutschen Sprache kann man alles singen: Rock (Tocotronic, Westernhagen...und über 300 tausend andere Bands), Reggae (Seeed, Gentleman...und beinahe 300 tausend andere reggae Bands und Projekte), Pop (Wir sind Helden, Selig etc....) und jetzt SALSA. Fantastico...einfach hervorragend. Macht weiter so, Leute!!!
