Daily Dose Pick: Project Ahimsa presents Global Lingo


Teaming musicians like Sly and Robbie and Miguel Migs with impoverished children, Global Lingo features the talents of those it supports.

The charity compilation is the product of Project Ahimsa, a nonprofit that sprang up in the wake of 9/11 to fight hate by “empowering youth through music.” Its efforts provide instruments and education to children everywhere from India and Guatemala to Colorado. The kids’ own sounds are blended with those of international heavyweights on this fittingly world-class mix.
