Notes

In mid 2010, the beat-collective VETERAN COSMIC ROCKER joined forces with rapper SPIRITED SAGE to participate in Senegal's Festa2H.

The Festa2H is a hiphop festival in and around Dakar put on annually by the Africulturban community center in Pikine.

Founded by rap and slam pioneer MATADOR, the Africulturban serves as a radiostation, recording studio, performance space and educational facility. Representatives from all corners of the globe meet there to host workshops in dance, beatcrafting, poetry, grafitti and DJ'ing - just to name a few.

It was over the course of a series of workshops that VCR & SS decided they didn't have much to teach the plethora of talents present - instead, the time should be used to explore some new creative aspects of music production.

Transcending the limits of the spoken language, the project evolved quickly through mutual musical understanding. Contributions from a wide variety of artists - Matador, Mustaf, Staz, Monza, As One, BelbH, MC Butcho, X, Simba, Aboubacr, Ode, Barham, David & Aliou - have all given their own perspective on the world, and under a banner of peace, love, unity & having fun, now present a complete studio album that denounces the world of borders and nationalities we are forced to live in every day - and instead unites us as human beings.

All profits from album sales go to the Africulturban Community Center in Pikine, Senegal.

Spirited Sage is an emcee from Denmark. As One hails from Guinea Bissau and Monza from Mauritania. The rest of the crew are all part of the Africulturban Collective, based out of Pikine, Dakar, Senegal.
