From http://www.afterquakemusic.com In May 2008 an earthquake devastated Sichuan province in China, killing tens of thousands and leaving millions homeless. To commemorate the one year anniversary of this tragedy, musicians Abigail Washburn and Dave Liang of the Shanghai Restoration Project traveled to Sichuan to make music with children who survived the earthquake and their parents. Using folk songs sung by the children as well as sounds of their parents rebuilding their houses with bricks and mortar, Abby and Dave created a unique musical soundscape, and this video shows how the whole process unfolded in March, 2009.

To see hear more of the music, see pictures from the project and to learn more about how to support Sichuan Quake Relief please visit http://afterquakemusic.com

You can also support quake relief by getting the tracks on iTunes:

Proceeds from the music help to provide much needed quake relief to the 5 million who lost homes in the earthquake.
