    Hand-printed with original paper cut artwork, all of the proceeds from these EPs will go to the musicians that I'll be studying with in Zimbabwe from Oct. 21-Nov. 14 of this year. These include mbira masters Fradreck Mujuru and Patience Chaitezvi, among others, and choirs at Seke Teachers College in Chitungwiza and Joshua Nkomo Polytechnic in Bulawayo. I am hoping to raise at least $3000 to give to these deserving artists, so please give what you can.

    All recording was done outside, under the stars, while camping at Spring Lake and on hiking excursions to Indian Pond and Kilburn Pond. If you listen close, you can hear the thrum of insects and birds and the lapping of water on the shore.

about

I recorded this album under the stars while camping by Spring Lake in central Vermont. If you listen close, you can hear crickets and birds and water lapping against the shore, but not (unfortunately) the loon that started calling at dawn.

All proceeds from this limited edition EP will go to the musicians that I'll be studying with in Zimbabwe from Oct. 21—Nov. 14, 2014, including Fradreck Mujuru, Patience Chaitezvi, and Sheasby Matiure. Downloads will only be enabled as long as the printing of 250 discs is available and will be turned off after that.

From these 250 copies, I am hoping to raise at least $3000 to distribute to these deserving artists. Please give what you can.
