Pray For Japan

“Pray For Japan”

The north coast of Japan was hit by a horrible tsunami after an 9.0
magnitude earthquake on Friday 11 March that occurred 80 miles
offshore. Tsunami waves caused major destruction and killed many
people in northern Japan. Current estimates are that over 10,000
people have died. Hundreds of thousands of people are without
electricity, and there serious water and food shortages. In
addition to this, the escalating problem at Fukushima nuclear
power plant made is taking the disaster to another level another
level. This is officially the worst crisis for Japan since WW2..

Being here in London, this incident is profoundly upsetting and
arouses the deepest sympathies, we feel the urgent need to take
action, to give a hope and shout to all the people in Japan. Please
come and join us as we pay tribute to the victims, raise money for
he rescue and relocation effort, and generally stand in solidarity
with Japan in the face of this terrible catastrophy.

Here are some of the wonderful artists that have volunteered to perform for this event:

Gilles Peterson (BBC Radio1)
Patrick Forge
Vanessa Freeman (live)
United Vibrations (live)
Nik Weston
Aroop Roy
Kay Suzuki
Koichi Sakai
