MYANMAR COMP  for spotify copy.jpg

Stream to Donate Sept 24

GRIMACE RECORDS Releases Myanmar Resistance Compilation supporting Food Not Bombs Myanmar September 24th, 2021.

 

The compilation includes 40 bands from around the world such as The Dwarves, Svetlanas, MDC, Restarts, and features many Southeast Asian local bands who have all donated songs to support the cause. Punks in Myanmar are struggling under an oppressive regime with very little support for impoverished families.“Punks from Food Not Bombs-Myanmar have been caring for the elderly homeless population, bringing books to schools, feeding the poorest of the poor while being shot at in the streets by authorities.

 

While the government stands by and lets COVID19 decimate their population, punks are out in the streets and they need our international community to back them up.” Says producer Sophie Rousmaniere. “Finally we have a way to ask people to help support the cause without having to give cash or even asking people to leave their homes. Just listen to some great revolutionary music.”In an attempt to shut down facebook, local news organizations and media, the Myanmar Government announced in February of ‘21 that a number of news outlets and social media platforms would be unavailable until further notice. Jojo, vocalist of Myanmar’s The Rebel Riot Band, who has been working with communities for years, has often been arrested speaking out for the people. “We are showing the government how to care for their citizens,”says Jojo. “We can’t force them to govern properly, but we can set an example." Their struggle has been covered in international press (see links below for Aljazeera, Vice, The Guardian, etc).

 

To support the cause simply listen to the Myanmar Resistance Compilation on Spotify. With their ‘stream to donate' system, “Anyone who can listen to the music can support the cause!” says John Hale, founder of Grimace Records.
