Rhythms Del Mundo
The globally acclaimed afro-latin music collective
When Doves Cry is the second EP released by Rhythms Del Mundo, which was created as a tribute to the late Prince, who passed away on 21st April 2016. Featuring three re-workings of his famous track When Doves Cry and merging the talents of Rhythms Del Mundo, British Psy Trance outfit ManMadeMan and singer-songwriter, Jazz Flowers.
The four-track EP includes three versions of When Doves Cry: Afro Cuban mix (mixed by Mike McGreal and Kenny Young); a modern African mix (mixed by Mike McGreal and Kenny Young); and a trance EDM mix by ManMadeMan. The fourth track is a new song titled ‘Ocean’ which is an Afro Cuban mix, synonymous with the sounds of Rhythms Del Mundo. All tracks feature the very talented sixteen-year-old, Jazz Flowers.
When Doves Cry is released ahead of Rhythms Del Mundo’s much anticipated seventh album, ‘Plastic Oceans’, due to be released in summer 2017. Proceeds will go towards funding marine conservation work worldwide, mitigating plastic ocean pollution, through Rhythms Del Mundo’s charity arm, Artists Project Earth as well as to Prince’s favourite environmental charity, Green For All.
Green For All works hard to fight climate change and bring green jobs to under privileged populations. They have been involved in many environmental initiatives.
As well as their unique sounds and musical style, Rhythms Del Mundo are very proud to be a non-profit organisation, working as the main music project of Artists Project Earth, donating all profits to climate change adaptation and mitigation and ocean conservation projects worldwide.
Through the release of their music, Rhythms Del Mundo have already supported over 360 projects via Artists Project Earth.
