Beats Of No Nation has released a 14-track compilation titled ‘Dance For A Future Green’ in aid of First Nations Communities affected by the catostrophic bushfires in Australia.
Philip Budny, Luen & Patch, Midnight Groove, Tour Maubourg, Jad & The, KX9000, Lavan, El Delpha, Muchos Alias, Meowsn’, Sam Stosuur, Olywok, LPTLG and Gloved Hands feature on the tracklist.
Wrting about the release on Bandcamp, the label said: “At BONN we are passionate about contributing to a brighter future and are committed to taking action, especially when our politicians won’t. In response to the tragic events that are taking place in our homeland, we asked some talented friends to contribute to a compilation to support those affected by the devastating bushfires across Australia.
“Proceeds will be donated to a campaign set up by a Yorta Yorta man and community rights advocate, Neil Morris (Drmngnow). The money raised will offer culturally sensitive, specific and direct support to communities with critical costs to cover—such as temporary relocation, basic amenities, property repairs and ongoing support where necessary.
“We would like to acknowledge that these tragedies have occurred on Sacred Indigenous lands where Sovereignty has not been ceded. The ongoing connection of First Nations people’s to country and culture is critical to life on this land. We acknowledge our ancestors and elders past present and future.”We premiered Philip Budny’s contribution ‘Halyard’. Listen to it below and buy the full compilation via Bandcamp.
