Featuring some of the brightest stars in music, ‘Revival’ is a new offering from Rhythms Del Mundo (RDM) in partnership with the widely-respected Artists Project Earth (APE), a UK NGO focusing on disaster relief and climate change awareness. With each of the tracks given the trademark RDM Afro-Cuban twist, ‘Revival’ offers several musical surprises while supporting relief efforts in Haiti, Chile, and Tibet following the recent catastrophes in these regions. APE has chosen Project Medishare to receive a portion of proceeds to further medical relief efforts in Haiti.
Particular highlights include the first ever authorized remix of “A Hard Rain’s A Gonna Fall” by Bob Dylan – only the second ever officially sanctioned remix of a Dylan song. Also included on the album are Afro-Cuban reworkings of Dizzee Rascal’s chart-topper “Holiday,” Franz Ferdinand’s “The Dark Of The Matinee” and The Gorillaz’ “Feel Good Inc.” ‘Revival’ also features a collaboration between Coldplay and Lele on a stunning version of Coldplay’s top-
ten hit “Clocks,” appropriately entitled “Clocks/Relojes” in keeping with the Cuban spirit of the album.
Other noteworthy contributions include a collection of covers including “I Fought The Law” by Green Day, Wyclef Jean’s remake of Bee Gee’s classic “Stayin’ Alive”, and KT Tunstall’s cover of Jefferson Airplane’s timeless “Somebody To Love.”
