The Border Songs CD is a compilation of spoken word and music addressing the catastrophic effects of US border policy. The CD was officially released October 12, 2012. We hope to raise nearly $100,000 for No More Deaths / No Más Muertes.
The Border Songs CD is available online at http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/bordersongs. Twenty dollars from each sale goes directly to No More Deaths/No Más Muertes.
We are approaching our deadline, and we still need to raise some money so that we can manufacture these CDs. We appreciate your consideration.

Costa Rican guitarist and composer Alejandro Cardona is contributing a recording of “Nada que llorar” to the Border Songs CD. He is one of many Spanish-speaking and international artists we have on the project. “Nada que llorar”is a really hot electric blues tune that features some killer guitar work!
The Border Songs CD is going to be a truly bilingual, eclectic recording.
We have a whole bunch of artists to announce, and we’re going start with Eliza Gilkyson. She is one of the finest singer/songwriters on this planet. She has expressed that the border issue is very close to heart, and she’s letting us use her original song “Vayan al Norte” from her Roses at the End of Time album. The song is perfect for our project.
Thank you Eliza! We’d also like to express our thanks to both Red House Records and Bluewater Music Services Corp. for attending to the various permissions in a very timely manner. As we approach our deadlines, this means a lot!
Check out a short film on Youtube featuring Eliza’s song “A Beautiful World”.
