The aim of this compilation is to raise funds for various (inter)national NGO’s, anti-racism advocacy groups and organisations of black initiative, with all proceeds to be donated to these causes.
In the aftermath of Black Lives Matter events around the world, this compilation is a way to keep the flame burning and the dialogue continued in order to build a just future. Bandcamp is deferring all of its revenues to musicians from this Friday’s sales. The objective of this compilation is twofold: first, to raise funds for various (international) NGOs, organizations fighting against racism, xenophobia and second, to stimulate activism more broadly for the defense of human rights.
The artists donated their tracks as part of a collaboration between Rebel Up and international labels such as Nyege Tapes, Syrphe, Bongo Joe Records, Sdban Records, Galletas Calientes, Blanc Manioc, Indigenous Underground, Strut, Earconditioning and 1000Hz Records.
This compilation brings together mainly Afro-electro artists from the global diaspora and some based in their home countries. A vibrant combination of contemporary sounds showcase a sensitivity to black life and culture around the world featuring Polish/Angolan duo Lua Preta, Malian artist Mc Waraba, British-Ghanaian quartet Onipa, traditional vodou musicians Chouk Bwa & The Ångströmers, Kenyan artist Disco Vumbi and more.
