Shika Shika launch a crowdfunding appeal and the first single from the forthcoming Guide to the Birdsong of Mexico, Central America & the Caribbean
Following the success of the album A Guide to the Birdsong of South America, released back in 2015 (and reviewed in #108), the Shika Shika label have released the first single from the forthcoming second volume – Guide to the Birdsong of Mexico, Central America & the Caribbean.
Ten artists from Mexico, Central America and the Caribbean have written and recorded songs using birdsong from their respective countries. The crowdfunding appeal aims to raise money for local bird conservation projects.
The first single from the release is 'Black Catbird' created by The Garifuna Collective from Belize.
