BUEN PROVECHO!

A Musicians Benefit for the Hospitalito Atitlan

Buen ProvechoThis CD came about before the October mudslides when a group of local musicians from Discos Atitlan and some bands from EvOR, an independant musicians website decided to try and help the recently inaugurated Hospitalito Atitlán. When the hospital was destroyed by a mudslide during the october, 2005 mudslides in Panabaj, this project became a lot more poignant. The proceeds are now destined for the construction of another hospitalito, on safer ground. The resulting record is very eclectic and the music fits together beautifully. This CD is for sale as a digital download directly from us through pay pal. The price is US$6:
