Ruth Fazal and I have been working together for a number of years and this is our first instrumental, violin and percussion collaboration – recorded at Pluto studios in Tel Aviv. Whilst recording 3 other projects during a 10 day period we decided to try and capture any spontaneous ideas – this album was the result. This track is called Seven.

Dear friends – the Gogo people of Mnase village in central Tanzania are again bracing themselves for food shortages due to another severe drought, which damaged food crops, resulting in a much reduced harvest. We have learned that there is already hunger in the villages and the cost of a bag of maize has already doubled in price, and it is expected that the situation will get worse. The next harvest season will be March – if the rains are sufficient. Voices from the Nations have been partnering with the Wagogo people of central Tanzania for the last 12 years. (Check out the “Sing to the Well” CD and DVD). We are looking at sending money to buy maize before the prices soar – and we need your help – if 500 people gave £10 each we would be able to send roughly 150 sacks of maize to Mnase village. We so appreciate your help – Asante sana.
