Senegalese singer and songwriter, Coumba Gawlo Seck has unveiled a proposal for the creation of a single by a group of African musicians, the proceeds of which will be donated to victims of the devastating Haitian earthquake that wrecked the Caribbean Island on Tuesday. According to a statement signed by the singer’s manager, Coumba Gawlo Seck is ”very deeply affected by the tragedy that struck the people of Haiti.” And apparently, her own response to the global call for support for the needy victims is coming in the form of mobilization of fellow musicians in Africa to produce a single musical track which will be sold purposely to raise fund for the cause. The epic project being spearheaded by the Senegalese music diva will also take the form of a mega musical concert, slated for an undisclosed date in February later this year. A comprehensive list of artists to be expected part of the project include Ivorian superstar, Alpha Blondy, Oumou Sangare of Mali, Congolese Papa Wemba, and a host of other big names from Senegal, Guinea and beyond. The press release also stated that many of artist who have been contacted embraced the project, and ‘‘some of whom have already agreed in principle”. The deadly earthquake which hit the Caribbean island the beginning of last week measures 7.0 on the Richter-Scale, according to experts, and so far it has claimed the lives of over 70,000 people, according to latest figures. Forecast put figures of the dead and injured at an even more alarming level.
