ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The Border Songs CD project began as an effort to send a different message about immigration than the one dominating news of Arizona. The CD began as a regional effort to show the human story of the border and to raise money for humanitarian work. The project quickly grew beyond its regional scope as established international acts got wind of the Border Songs mission. The two-CD set represents an amazingly diverse collection of bilingual music and spoken word in support of huma rights along the USA/Mexico border.

Contributing spoken word and music artists include: Sweet Honey in the Rock, Lilo González y los de la Mt. Pleasant, Amos Lee, Charles Bowden, Cyril Barrett, Tom Russell, Margaret Randall, Glenn Weyant, Pachuco and Classik, Robert Neustadt, Sergio Mendoza y la Orkesta, Giant Giant Sand, m. henry, Scott Ainslie, Ted Warmbrand, Mario Bencastro, Christa Sadler, Calacas Blues, Michael Franti and Spearhead, Joel Rafael, Raúl Zurita, Dúo Guardabarranco, Los Románticos, Eliza Gilkyson, Óscar Sarmiento, Calexico, Chuck Cheesman, Lakesigns, Denise Chávez, Eric Skye, and Pete Seeger.

Produced by Robert Neustadt and Chuck Cheesman on behalf of No More Deaths / No Más Muertes.
Artist relations and additional production: Bill Carter and Ted Warmbrand
Graphic Design: Christa Agostino of Granite Mountain Graphics
Cover art: Ni de Aqui ni de Allá, an original woodcut by Raoul Deal
