Press Release :
Featuring top musicians from around the world, all the proceeds from ASAP: The Afrobeat Sudan Aid Project will benefit the people suffering in the Darfur region of Sudan. Modiba hopes that this project will also raise awareness about the dire situation in Darfur: by some estimates, over 400,000 people have died by dehydration, disease, and at the hands of the Janjaweed -- armed horsemen supported by the government of Sudan. To accomplish this, Modiba has teamed up with TrueMajority, a grassroots education and advocacy group committed to social and political justice (founded by Ben Cohen of Ben and Jerry's). TrueMajority has already done some incredible work in Darfur, sending camera crews and attempting to bring witnesses into the United States (the US State Department refused entry). Apple Computer has also provided key support, prominently featuring the album and allowing all of the sales from ASAP: The Afrobeat Sudan Aid Project on the iTunes Music Store to go towards aid. Many thanks to all the musicians on ASAP for donating their music.
