Rise & Shine, A 80 Minute Mix Of 100% Japanese Music To Help Raise Funds For The Red Cross Within Japan, $25 Available Here From Conch
This compilation is the result of a special two hour Earshot radio show Cian did on the 11th March 2012. This particular date marked the one year anniversary of the 8.9 magnitude earthquake and resulting tsunami that
caused massive destruction and loss of life in Japan.
In addition, the earthquake and tsunami triggered the biggest nuclear crisis since Chernobyl when three reactors at the nearby Fukushima nuclear power plant melted down.
This fall out sparked mass evacuations, leaving large areas ghost towns to this day. Unlike the immediate impacts of the natural disasters the casualties of the fall out will continue for decades to come.
The response from the radio show both here and overseas, prompted me to put together a proper 80 minute mix CD consisting of 100% Japanese artists and music.
The clean up and restoration of life in Japan to what it once was is far from over. If you would like to help then simply purchase this CD. All proceeds will go to the Red Cross to eventually allow those affected to
hopefully get back on their feet.
