Wilderness needs more wild people – so we’re cranking up the wild music to expand our community. Working with Baba Brinkman, the irrepressible and undeniable creative force who forges art and science into new musical tools for a better world, we’re bringing to you The Rap Guide to Wilderness. The WILD Foundation is 40 years young this year, wilder than ever, and we want find new and exciting ways to connect people to wild nature.
We first began working with Baba Brinkman at WILD10 on a collection of rap songs that capture the spirit of our conservation efforts in a way that is infectious and heartfelt. Baba is a science communicator and worked for 12 years in the Canadian Wilderness as a tree planter, so we knew he’d be a perfect fit for this project. Baba is performing at the World Parks Congress in Sydney, Australia in November 2014; a once-every-ten-years meeting of the world’s conservation organizations, both government and nonprofit. We created a 30-day crowdfunding campaign to get the project completed just in time for Baba to premiere the Rap Guide to Wilderness album on the world stage at WPC2014. We’re thrilled to announce that as of November 20, 2014, the album will be on sale to the public!
Join The WILD Foundation for the official album launch at Riverside Theatres.
