Wapapura records albums in natural settings or culturally significant locations where the environment plays a major role in the recording sessions.
We travel with our mobile solar powered recording studio and set up a recording environment that allows musicians the opportunity to record in communication with a beautiful natural acoustic setting.
The albums available on our site are linked with an environmental non-profit that benefits from the donations made for the downloading of the music.
