Musical Relief

I know you've already given this year for the Tsunami, for Sudan, for Katrina. But the world still needs you. If you've already made a cash donation, then shift your strategy and do a little holiday shopping at CDbaby. The great indie-artist online music store just announced that many of their artists are donating 100% of their sales proceeds to Katrina relief. (and we mentioned earlier that Putumayo is doing the same thing with a couple of their CDs). That means thousands of CDs - give the gift of music with a note saying the money went to a good cause, and you double the listening (and giving) pleasure. Here's a sampling of what's available:
  • BOB MARLEY: another voice of bob marley
  • IRENE FARRERA & VENEZUELA VIVA: serenata
  • MANISH VYAS & DINA AWWAD: sufi splendor
  • IKWUNGA: calabash afrobeat-poems by ikwunga vol.1
  • VIOLET SAMUDRA: bliss beyond
  • CORREO AEREO: lo que me dijo el viento
  • RAQUY AND THE CAVEMEN: jordan
  • GREG RIBOT &CUMBIA DEL NORTE: the international conspiracy
  • MOTHERDRUM: drumming inside mother earth
  • ZION JUDAH: divine creation
  • CELTIC HARVEST LIVE: irish musicians for autism
