Aquarius Rising + Songs of Hope for Haiti

The recent earthquake disaster in Haiti has focussed the world’s attention on the country. Help is needed now and in times ahead.

Randy Winchester, Events Coordinator of The Nave Gallery in Cambridge / Somerville, Massachusetts, USA has brought together a dozen musical friends of the Nave, a group of artists which includes Allison Crowe, contributing her song "Aquarius Rising", to make an album, “Songs of Hope for Haiti”.

Says Randy: “Songs of Hope for Haiti is a project to help relief efforts in Haiti. Please consider making a donation to Partners In Health. Go to their website and learn about the good work that they do around the world, especially in Haiti. PIH needs our support now more than ever during this enormous crisis.

Partners In Health (PIH) works to bring modern medical care to poor communities in twelve countries around the world, and has been working on the ground in Haiti for over twenty years. The work of PIH has three goals: to care for their patients, to alleviate the root causes of disease in their communities, and to share lessons learned around the world. Based in Boston, PIH employs more than 11,000 people worldwide, including doctors, nurses and community health workers. The vast majority of PIH staff are local nationals based in the communities they serve.

You can find the album on Jamendo:
