Support music supporting climate activists

Undercurrents have received funding from a great charity called APE who are funded by
the biggest stars in the music industry. They all joined forces on the latest Rhythms del Mundo album, 'Classics' produced to raise awareness and much-needed funds for
climate crisis projects and natural disaster relief. The sublime talent of Cuba's
finest musicians together with the unmistakable vocals of artists including Amy
Winehouse, The Killers, Jack Johnson, The Rolling Stones, Kaiser Chiefs, Fall Out
Boy, and many others, result in a unique album merging Afro-Cuban rhythms with some
of the most memorable songs of the last 40 years. This album is the soundtrack to
the summer!

Rhythms Del Mundo - Classics is the latest project from UK climate change charity,
Artists' Project Earth (APE) which was formed in 2005 following the devastating
Indian Ocean tsunami. This album follows in the footsteps of their first release
Rhythms Del Mundo - Cuba! (ft. Coldplay, U2, Radiohead, Arctic Monkeys and others)
which went platinum and gold in many countries across the globe and was met with
much critical acclaim; "....an album made with such integrity and passion that turns
out as entertaining as this, is hard to resist." - The Independent. As a result 170
groundbreaking projects have been funded globally, all of which are developing
solutions to climate change, thanks to support from APE and the Rhythms del Mundo
albums.

Kenny Young, RDM's producer and founder of APE says: "These great artists have given
up their time to be part of an album that will raise awareness and funds for the
most crucial crisis facing us today. Climate change is our greatest global challenge
- so join us and act now to do something positive for our future."
