Buffetlibre Give PEACE A Chance

Three weeks before the official launch of the PEACE compilation, Buffetlibre announce the latest additions to this new initiative, co-produced by Amnesty International, that will include new exclusive songs by musicians from over 50 countries, building the first musical atlas in the net. PEACE will be released on March 1, 2010, given for free to all those who, through the official PEACE website, make a minimum donation of € 2 in favor of the NGO Amnesty International. All benefits will go to Amnesty International to stand up for humanity and human rights. Their purpose is to protect individuals wherever justice, fairness, freedom and truth are denied.

To the long list of previously announced participants, featuring Ryuichi Sakamoto, Marc Almond and The Low Anthem, the ensemble of artists who are part of PEACE is completed with artists such as Micah P Hinson (USA), Mogwai (UK), Stereo Total (Germany), The Pet Conspiracy (China), The Hidden Cameras (Canada),Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin (USA), Keren Ann (Israel), Jori Hulkkonen (Finland), Martha Galarraga (Cuba), Kiala (Congo), Heiddy Happy (Switzerland) in collaboration with Paul Niehaus from Calexico, and Titi Robin (France). With these additions, 56 countries are represented in the compilation, by some of its best artists.

Buffetlibre is glad to offer PEACE's first single as free-download mp3. The choosen song is "Mike", written and composed by Ivri Lider, one of Israel's most successful singer/songwriters. Ivri Lider's catalog is remarkable both for its sonic diversity and consistent popularity. Since his debut album in 1997, the multi-instrumentalist has seen each of his six albums achieve gold or platinum status and Lider taking home Male Singer of the Year. Over the past decade, he has explored numerous genres ranging from acoustic ballads and pop to rock and electronic music. He is currently working with internationally acclaimed producer Andy Green (Keane) on his next album.
