Great news from the Spanish MO forum www.mike-oldfield.es
Next February 16 a tribute charity album called "Satelite Oldfield V: Return to Samaka" will be released. Two tracks are currently available on Bandcamp and more will come in the following days.
Here's the press release in English:
Satélite Oldfield V: Return to Samaka
RELEASE DATE: 16 February 2017 Limited CD · Digital
Over 10 years ago, Mike-Oldfield.es forum started a series of digital-only compilation albums as a tribute to the author of masterpieces such as Tubular Bells or Ommadawn. The music was written and performed by members of Mike Oldfield's Spanish fanbase, artists heavily influenced by his eclectic style: folk, electronica, new age, prog rock...
This "Return to Samaka" comes after the fourth instalment of the series, Satélite Oldfield IV: Samaka, a touching collaborative suite in 2 parts that was also a tribute to two late members of the forum. "Samaka is that place where we all wish to return". Then, Mike Oldfield has recently returned to the origin of his early works in Return to Ommadawn.
Satélite Oldfield takes a step forward with this episode 5 by joining Matumaini EPD (http://www.matumainiepd.org), an NGO that helps homeless children and young people at risk of exclusion from Karatu, Tanzania. 100% of profits from physical and digital sales will be donated to Matumaini EPD to assist these Tanzanian kids. The album includes 4 songs written and performed by a group of them under the name of Mwema's Street Talents!
Satélite Oldfield V: Return to Samaka will be released on 16 February 2017. Pre-order for both limited CD (with a beautiful artwork by Tenllado Studio) and digital edition is now open.
