Habagat Sounds: Helping Typhoon Victims through Music

WHEN IN MANILA, natural calamities, such as earthquakes, floods, and storms, are inevitable. The least we, Filipinos, can do is to be prepared when disasters challenge our resilience and support each other in times of need.

There are a lot of ways in which we could donate and help. Even if you’re just staying at home, sharing rescue posts on Facebook and Twitter can already make a lot of difference.

In line of this modern mode of extending one’s help, we would like to promote another way wherein people can help both the victims of typhoon Maring and our local musicians.

Habagat Sounds, which was launched during Typhoon Gener in last year, is a non-profit and pro-active crowd funding project of ArtisteConnect.com designed for music fans and musicians to support current and future victims of natural disasters in the Philippines.

“When unfortunate events like these arise, we will not try to pull up funds just after a calamity strikes but instead we will be ready or at least have a head start,” says ArtisteConnect.

People can give Php100, Php500, or Php1,000 to have access to a folder loaded with original music from musicians who contributed tracks to fill this digital download compilation with tender loving goodness. The project is expected to raise Php50,000 until September 15, 2013.

As of August 23, 2013, the folder contains 130+ tracks! (including tracks from Habagat Sounds I:  Benefit for Typhoon Gener) of released and unreleased material from:
