Rhythms del Mundo, Album CoverWow, this is awesome. I just found out about this through this week’s Grist List. First, just click this link and come back to read while you listen to these awesome tunes. Some major artists like Sting, Dido, Maroon 5, Coldplay, U2, and (the last recording of) Ibrahim Ferrer are singing some incredible songs that you probably know – but with a latin twist. Incredible. Sting singing in Spanish and it sounds great.

In fact, I declare now in this moment, that I, Rebecca Carter, green gossiper who has not bought music of any kind in over a year, will be purchasing this album – Rhythms del Mundo. It drops on November 13.

ALL profits of the album will go to benefit Artists’ Project Earth (APE), who, “through music and the arts, Artists Project Earth aims to achieve permanent reductions in greenhouse gas emissions; reducing them to levels which can be sustained, and which result in no further degradation of ecological systems and human livelihood.”

The idea for the album came up after the Tsunami:

The unforgettable Asian Tsunami of 2004 was the catalyst for the Rhythms del Mundo project and the Sundance Film Festival its’ birthplace.

It was in that creative atmosphere that Kenny Young and the Berman Brothers hatched an idea to bring together members of the Buena Vista Social Club in a collaboration with Western artists to record popular familiar songs, fusing them with exciting Latin rhythms. I think somehow, we accomplished this.

Additional artists on the album: Artic Monkeys, Kaiser Chiefs, Jack Johnson, Franz Ferdinand, Faithless, Omara Portuondo, and more. Get Ready!
