Beyoncé, R.E.M., Eminem, Coldplay, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Mumford and Sons, Fleet Foxes, and more have contributed to the latest Artists Project Earth (APE) charity compilation. Entitled Rhythms Del Mundo: Africa, the 13-track effort features remixes of the aforementioned by noted African musicians Toumani Diabaté, Bassekou Kouyate, Ali Farka Touré Band, and Rokia Traoré. Members of Miriam Makebas band and various Senegalese musicians also contributed. For a taste of the collection, check out a six-minute sampler mix below.
“Artists Project Earth is funded entirely by sales of Rhythms Del Mundo albums,” founder Kenny Young said in a statement. “Unlike most charitable donations, you get something tangible and enjoyable in return – as well as the knowledge that you are actively supporting some really well-respected organisations and projects. We are known as the Fairy God-Funders of the climate change movement – please help us to continue spreading our magic!
Rhythms Del Mundo: Africa hits stores on November 20th via The End Records. Pre-orders are available now (snag yours here).
