La trama & Chandrasound, who are doing something that is super cool..perhaps one of the ways to save CDS or at least to bring them back..we have seen a vinyl revival, and perhaps this is the first step in something super creative, interactive and totally futuristic, not only in concept but also in music

This one comes from INDIGENOUS RESISTANCE
Galdino : Pataxo Warrior ( Sawandi’s Defiance In The ShadowsDubMix) feat Jah 9 , Zumbi &The Ghost.
Galdino Jesus dos Santos was an indigenous Pataxó activist based in Brasil.
In 1997, he attended an indigenous rights meeting in Brasilia. Unfortunately, he missed the last bus to his lodging and as is the custom for many Brasilians, he stayed all night in the bus shelter in order to catch the morning bus. A group of youths – the sons of the capital’s elite judges and lawyers – found Galdino asleep. They poured gasoline on him and set him on fire, all as part of a cruel joke. Galdino died after suffering burns to 90% of his body. These murderous actions are indicative of how Brasil’s economically powerful elites treat those they perceive as ‘powerless.’
Indigenous Resistance attended the trial of Galdino’s murderers. We met his family and were shown the coroner’s photos of his charred corpse. I.R. was also witness to the special treatment and light punishment meted out to the murderers. In the years since his death, we have watched the Brasilian media continuously mute all coverage and remembrance of Galdino’s tragedy. This state of neglect stands in sharp contrast to the high visibility given annually for the death of journalist Tim Lopes. But we know that Galdino’s death is not an isolated incident. It opens up urgent issues of land demarcation; the exploitation of resources on indigenous ancestral lands; and the abysmal state of indigenous rights throughout Brasil in general. There is no silence on Galdino’s story – only shadows.
