The Australian record label has released a fourteen track compilation in a bid to raise money to help support communities affected by the result of widespread bushfires with have burned furiously throughout the country for weeks. The label has described the rationale behind the release as follows:
You’ve probably heard by now that Australia is in the midst of an unprecedented climate disaster. Catastrophic bushfires are raging across much of Australia and have not only taken a huge human and economic toll but have also delivered heavy blows to native flora and fauna.
"At BONN we are passionate about contributing to a brighter future and are committed to taking action, especially when our politicians won’t. In response to the tragic events that are taking place in our homeland, we asked some talented friends to contribute to a compilation to support those affected by the devastating bushfires across Australia.
Proceeds will be donated to a campaign set up by a Yorta Yorta man and community rights advocate, Neil Morris (Drmngnow). The money raised will offer culturally sensitive, specific and direct support to communities with critical costs to cover—such as temporary relocation, basic amenities, property repairs and ongoing support where necessary.
We would like to acknowledge that these tragedies have occurred on Sacred Indigenous lands where Sovereignty has not been ceded. The ongoing connection of First Nations people’s to country and culture is critical to life on this land. We acknowledge our ancestors and elders past present and future."
The release features contributions from El Delpha, Jad & The, Tour Mauborg and more.
