Wapapura in Colombia
This coming January and February Wapapura will be traveling to Colombia. We are looking forward to working with a collective of musicians from Bogota to create recordings to support the work of the non-profit RESNATUR.
Resnatur is a network of private ecological reserves around Colombia. Individuals dedicating their farms to sustainable ecological initiatives or simply just allowing the land to heal and be. Colombia is at present under attack from international mining and logging companies taking advantage of the recent political stability in most areas of the country. Being one of the most bio-diverse places on earth these companies are coming in and extracting the natural resources and leaving trails of ecological destruction in their path.
Wapapura will be traveling with its portable solar powered recording unit and uniting with a group of musicians from the capital, Bogota. We will be traveling to various locations of great ecological importance to offer music to the Earth. We will then be making an album with these recording to help projects holding off this wave of natural destruction taking place.
We will be starting a kickstarter campaign soon looking for support to fund this project. Please stay tuned and lend a hand if you can.
