It’s a project created by Artists Project Earth to raise awareness of the impact of climate change and to fund organisations that are actively doing something about it. All projects are directly funded from sales of Rhythms Del Mundo albums, of which we have released four to date with over 1.5 million sales worldwide. Proceeds from the sales of these albums have so far funded over 360 projects:from coral reef restoration to agroforestry projects in Brazil; from the Wild City Project to the No Nonsense Video Guides to Climate Change.
