東日本大震災の直後から、OVERHEAT MUSICのECがチャリティ・ソングの制作をしている。ジャマイカ、アメリカ、イギリス、そしてもちろん日本からはPushim、Moominを始めトップ・クラスのアーティスト達が集結。さらに全員が同じトラックの上で異なるメロディとリリックを歌うというレゲエならではのスタイルということだが、その全貌を知るにはレゲエザイオン、レコチョク、iTunesでは5月下旬まで待たなければならない。ならばその前にこの「This Moment」をプロデュースしたECに真相を訊くべく緊急インタヴュー。
TOKYO, Japan, April 26, 2011/African Press Organization (APO)/ — In response to the Great East Japan Earthquake, the Government of the Republic of Kenya made a donation of 1 million US dollars (approximately 80 million yen) as relief money for Japan.
From Kenya, letters and messages of sympathy were sent from H.E. Mr. Mwai Kibaki, President of the Republic of Kenya, Rt. Hon. Raila Odinga, Prime Minister of the Republic of Kenya, Hon. Prof. George Saitoti, Minister for Internal Security and Provincial Affairs, and Acting Minister for Foreign Affairs and others. Prime Minister Odinga visited the Embassy of Japan in Kenya, accompanied by Members of the Kenyan Parliament, Kenyan Olympic marathon medalists and others, signed the condolence book on Thursday, March 17.
‘Starting Over’ and ‘Matsushima’ are the latest efforts by Japanese natives living in Jamaica, Jun Tochino and Yumiko ‘Yumi’ Gabe, to aid in disaster relief funds for victims of the March 11 earthquake and tsunami.
The two who are well-known in the Jamaican music industry approached several artistes with the idea to do a song of which the proceeds will go to the relief fund and they said many of reggae’s great legends stepped up right away to lend their talent and names to the worthy cause.
“Me and Jun, we were thinking what we can do because we are so far from Japan. We are involved in reggae music a lot here, so we a use music to help,” Yumi told the STAR.
