Featuring some of the brightest stars in music, ‘Revival’ is the third album by Rhythms Del Mundo (RDM) in collaboration with Artists Project Earth. With each of the tracks given the trademark RDM Afro-Cuban twist, ‘Revival’ offers some wonderful musical surprises while supporting relief efforts in Haiti, Chile, and Tibet following the 2010 catastrophes in these regions.

In buying this album you are sustaining the ongoing work of APE to alleviate suffering, rebuild infrastructure and livelihoods and prepare communities for a more resilient future. A minimum amount of £2 will be donated from the sale of each copy of RDM Revival initially to provide necessities such as medical supplies, food, water and shelter to the people of Haiti, Chile and the Tibetan Plateau who are still struggling to survive in the wake of the devastating earthquakes of 2010. Once the immediate disaster relief needs have been met, proceeds from RDM Revival will be used for longer-term redevelopment. See the Project Medishare Nutrimil Programme in Haiti for example.
Dizzee Rascal – “I feel very proud to be given the opportunity to make such a contribution to APE and am glad to be involved in a project that will give much needed help and hope to those suffering in Haiti, Chile and Tibet.”
Groove Armada’s Tom Findlay – “Just because the plight of Haiti is no longer in the media focus, it doesn’t mean to say that everything has been sorted out. People still need our help.”
APE Founder Kenny Young said, “The media lens has focused elsewhere, but the people of Haiti and now Chile and the Tibetan Plateau too, are still struggling to survive and rebuild their lives. They still need our help.”
