Where can you find 18 cool new (unreleased) tracks from the likes of Norah Jones, Mos Def, Ozomatli, Sheryl Crow and Damien Rice all on one album, all for a great cause? On the newly released charity compilation titled RAISE Hope for Congo.
Curated by music tastemaker/expert Nic Harcourt (KCRW DJ and Los Angeles Times Magazine contributor), the album hopes to increase the awareness of the plight of abused Congolese women. All profits raised through the compilation will help fund critical field research and awareness-raising efforts that will work to end the conflict in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
You can buy the album digitally ($10) or wait for the CD release on June 22nd ($15-20). Either way you’re helping raise hope for the Congo, which it could seriously use.
