Recently, the independent record label Second Language released the third volume of its compilation, Music & Migration III. The CD celebrates migratory birds and it includes exclusive contributions from international artists, such as Chris Watson, Mark Fry and Colleen.
The third volume follows the success of previous releases in 2010 and 2011 and is dedicated to BirdLife International on its 20th Anniversary and particularly celebrates its global work for migratory birds.
Martin Holm at Second Language stated “Engaging the music scene in support of BirdLife International is a creative way of reaching new audiences around the relevant work on migratory birds.”
Music & Migration III comes packaged as a six-panel concertina sleeve beautifully illustrated by Frances Castle of Clay Pipe Records/The Hardy Tree. Included is a free bonus disc, Mizieb EP, by The Home Current featuring remixes of Theme From Mizieb. Two original tracks complete the set - Fiddien Torchlight Procession (feat. Anna Rose Carter) and A Case Of Domestic Violins (feat. Sarah Kemp of brave timbers/Lanterns On The Lake).
In 2010, Second Language released its first compilation, which was themed around issues of avian migration, and the many man-made threats to international flyways as highlighted by BirdLife International. The album proved to be both an artistic and critical success, selling out its limited edition almost immediately. Encouraged by its success, Second Language went on to release a second volume in 2011, this time in support of BirdLife Malta and their efforts to secure avian migratory routes across the islands.
