March 17, 2016
We’re very happy to share with you all that the international movement Rize of the Morning Star has just released their second CD compilation which features many prominent musicians from around the world, using their musical talents to raise international awareness and support for West Papua’s freedom.
The ‘RIZE OF THE MORNING STAR’ banner unites musicians everywhere to support West Papua and uses music as a weapon to resist oppression and bring hope to all West Papuans inside and abroad to continue their fight for independence.
From Rize of the Morning Star: ‘The sounds of this star-studded music compilation will engulf listeners with sound-scapes and fierce messages that reflect the troubling heart of a nation facing injustice and denial of their rights to self-determination for over five decades.’
