A new compilation seeks to aid human rights organizations in Chile.
Valesuchi, Silent Servant, BADSISTA, Nicola Cruz, Verraco, Paula Tape, Julianna, Alessandro Adriani and Florian Kupfer are among the artists contributing material to the 51-track compilation, Despertar: Chile, out now on Bandcamp.
The South American country is currently experiencing intense political unrest as protestors mobilize against the country's extreme economic and social inequality under President Sebastián Piñera. Proceeds from Despertar: Chile will go towards institutions (none specified at this time) working on the ground in Chile.
The Bandcamp description, written by Buenos Aires-based artist f.a.n.g.o., provides more context.
"In October 2019, boosted by the new generations irreverence, millions of people [fought] for a life that's worthwhile to live. [P]resident Piñera's government replied with the only language they know to attend [to these] demands: repression. In different cities throughout the country, protesters are being killed, tortured and raped by the brutal police and military force, while the media hides the crimes of the state. [P]resident Piñera insists on the need of going back to 'normal,' but people don't accept this normality anymore.
We believe that in the crevices that music allows and in the international networks that are weaved around artistic creation, as it is in the extended protests around the globe, the pulse beats as a promise of a non-liberal existence, determined by solidarity and empathy. This compilation, that will allocate the funds raised to human rights institutions, voices this conviction and hopes that these recent events are only the starting point for a deep and unstoppable transformation."
