From The Region

In response to the crisis caused by the 7.0 earthquake in Haiti, Jamaica's music fraternity has come together in an unprecedented show of solidarity for a historic recording titled ‘Listen2theCall’. The song project will premiere Tuesday February 23rd at 4:53pm Haiti time with a Global Media Simulcast planned to coincide with the earthquake's 6 week anniversary and commemorate the victims and survivors of the killer quake.

Produced by Handel Tucker, Listen2theCall features several of Jamaica’s greatest talents including Toots (of Toots and the Maytals), Sly & Robbie, Marcia Griffiths, Maxi Priest, Diana King, Luciano, Barrington Levy, Beres Hammond and dub poet Mutabaruka along with more than 25 other artistes and musicians. A special four minute and fifty three second acoustic mix of ‘Listen2theCall’ will launch the remix project and profits from the sale of the song project will go to benefit the relief and rehabilitation effort in Haiti. The song, video and ringtones will be available for download at as of 5:00pm on Tuesday, February 23rd and the remix album will be available on iTunes after release by Spring 2010.
