Limited Edition Vinyl Record Features 60 Musicians in Honor of George Floyd

With the 2nd anniversary of George Floyd’s death on May 25, comes a new movement that touches all corners of the earth. Black Lives: From Generation to Generation is a two-disc vinyl limited edition project featuring songs by 25 artists and over 60 musicians across the globe to fight for equality and social justice. The beauty of this project is that these global composers take you on a personal music journey of pain, love, kindness and hope for the human race to conquer all. Each song tells a unique story from geographical viewpoints across the world of culture shifters and change agents who range from 20 to 80 years of age.

The multi-national, multi-genre musical tale reflects the culturally connective power of music to bring together individuals, places and generations. Sparked as a source of moral truth and potent weaponry in response to the worldwide George Floyd protests initiated, this work is spearheaded by Brussels-based Music Agency and Label Producer Stefany Calembert and her husband African-American Veteran Bassist Reggie Washington. They used the therapeutic medicine of music that has historically uplifted people of color during the civil rights movements.

Artwork Designer Rebecca Meek created beautiful imagery for the expressive album cover depicting the Black experience. Meek has also designed album covers for Sony Music, Island Records, RCA, and Def Jam along with serving as a photographer Etta James, Run DMC, The O’Jay’s, Anthony Hamilton and more. With still more work to be done since Floyd’s death, this project shines a light on racism as a global issue beyond the borders of the U.S. And encourages more open dialogue to foster real change.
