The Freedom Remixes
April 17 is the day when Albert Woodfox has been held in solitary confinement for 43 years. It’s the longest time in American history. Many of us around the world, thru Amnesty International and Free the Angola 3, feel the urge to call for his justice. Along with my music friends Eric Moquet of Deep Forest, Gota Yashiki (former Simply Red), Shinchi Osawa, NORD, DF Tram, Steve Miller of Afterlife and Diamond Duggal, a Remix EP is released in Alberts honor… and to continue spread the taste of his freedom to come.
Now….let the music do the talking….love Meja
