This is Kalba - a collaborative album between musicians in Ghana and the UK

I'll be writing string arrangements for this collaborative album between musicians in Ghana and the UK, the proceeds of which will go towards building a new school in the community of Kalba, North Ghana, where the musicians are from. A friend of mine from back in the Yorkshire wilderness Sonny Johns is putting the record together, he's a MOBO, Mercury and Grammy nominated producer who has worked on all sorts of marvellous world music records around the world, and it'll also feature a host of other musicians and arrangers both here in the UK and in Kalba.

You can support the project over at the crowd funding page by pre-ordering the record, and there are a bunch of other ways to get involved and follow the project too. Have a gander here.
