A NEW DAY – LAYA PROJECT REMIXED
Five years after the Laya Project journey began, loved and respected musicians and remixers from cities across USA, UK, Germany, Israel, India and New Zealand come together in collaboration with the recordings from far away, remote lands, for a union of electronic and traditional music.
Bridging the distance, urban music embraces diverse traditions and cultures in Laya Project’s musical celebration of life, the remixers on A New Day are known for their keen ears for global music and their experience, and have working with sensitivity to blend tradition and digital production, beats and soul.
For the Laya Project, EarthSync dedicated years to produce a fitting tribute to the peoples in coastal communities from Sri Lanka, Thailand, Indonesia, the Maldives, India, and Myanmar (Burma). Recorded on site during impromptu sessions over the course of more than two years in tsunami affected areas. This music spans national, ethnic, and religious boundaries. The remixes, staying true to the tracks’ spirit, span genres and sounds, embracing other elements to shed new light on the Project’s mission: to reveal the joy, creativity, and strength of the everyday people who had faced the trial and heartbreak of the tsunami, and rebuilt their lives and worlds.
