      I'm glad the project is moving ahead... I was wondering about the "Best of" CD: Any word on when you're going to have the ready to release.

    2. Creator Ian Kramar on May 15, 2013

      I'm curious about the DVD as well.

    3. Creator Allen G on June 22, 2012

      Any word on the DVD yet? Just curious since I haven't seen an update for a bit. Thanks.

      How are things going with the project?

    8. Creator Charlie Gibson on February 17, 2012

      Some of my favorite music is afrobeat and highlife, so to hear a type of music coming out of Africa within the same vein but with different backgrounds is so exciting!

    9. Creator rebecca corey on February 6, 2012

      Eric, thanks so much for your comment and for being a part of the work! We wouldn't be able to do this without our amazing Kickstarter backers. Stay tuned for more updates, song samples, etc. Pamoja kwa muziki (together for the music)!
