The launch of the CD Amazon Our Land by the young artists from the band Backyard Drums, from the project Rivers of Meeting, will be taking place today (this Saturday) from 7pm onwards (timezone: UTC -3), in the Afro-Indigenous community of Cabelo Seco (in Brazil), between the Amazonian Rivers Tocantins and Itacaiúnas.

Messages of solidarity for these young musicians who refuse to step onto any stage funded by the multinational mining company Vale, presently devastating the Amazon, are welcome and will strengthen the movement for a living and sustainable Amazon.
