EDITED VERSION FOR WBAI NEW YORK
LEFT ON RED www.leftonredmusic.com Live in studio with their new conscious aware music CD The Underground Busking Experience. Their October touris designed to promote and educate about fair trade chocolate and the child slavery in the cocoa farms in the Ivory Coast of Africa. It turns out %40 of the world's cocoa is sourced from the Ivory Coast in Africa where it's estimated over 200,000 children have been enslaved, many through trafficking. We are going into high school classrooms along the tour route to give workshops and concerts - as well as venues in the evenings. Some venues where you can catch their performance are The Huntington Cinema Arts Center on Long Island, Caffe Vivaldi in NYC, Ani DiFranco's Babeville in Buffalo, and Caffe Lena in Saratoga Springs. And the classrooms run the gamut of alternative education in Ithaca, NY to large inner city schools such as East High School in Rochester.
