Ginkgo Music (album mix)
A few years ago I’ve had the pleasure of mixing this unique album. Besides a Grammy winning artist (Dobet Gnahore), an Oscar winning artists (Jorge Drexler) and a UK number 1 artist (Kate Walsh), it has several well known and fantastic musicians (David McAlmont, Devon Sproule + BJ Cole, Zarif + The Nextmen) playing versions of one of their songs in a unique way…pure and acoustic, often recorded in unusual spaces. The money made from this album goes towards the rain forest in Ecuador, which has a unique flora and fauna that needs preservations, and, therefore, I’m even more proud to have been part of this project. The album is meant to be released soon and has a fantastic booklet with lots of pictures in it. Also, the CD also contains on-location recordings from the rain forest. Monkey sounds included!
