Benefit Concerts

Colombian popstar Juanes performed at a very special location last week: the European Parliament in Brussels. He did a three-song concert to support the EU campaign against landmines, being one of the international faces of the Colombia Sin Minas campaign (together with Shakira). You can watch concert fragments (preceded by long speeches in Spanish) here.

Also, on May 24 Juanes will host a special LA concert to benefit Colombia Sin Minas, with Alejandro Sanz, Ana Gabriel and Carlos Vives performing as well.

His compatriota Shakira will also perform at a unique event: the Soccer World Cup final in Berlin. She'll sing her latest hit Hips Don't Lie together with Wyclef Jean (the song is still featured on the playlist on your right), before the final match kicks off.

And last but not least, she's also planning a big benefit concert, a "latin american Live Aid", for 2007. She says international aid is too focused on Africa and Asia, and empoverished Latin America needs help too.

Compleet naast de kwestie wil ik hier ook even de aandacht vestigen op de Hip-Hop & Reggaeton Expo in Bergen komende vrijdag (28 april). Onder andere Papi Sanchez, Master Joe & OG Black en Nederlanders Ghetto Flow en KLibre zullen er optreden. Tickets 29€ vvk, 40€ add.

Great blog, great music. I discover a lot of music on my own, but blogs like this and Benn loxo du taccu are great for more detailed exploration. Keep it up!
