FOLK MEDICINE: Live-Stream Benefit Concert for the People of the Amazon
Featuring music from Bonnie “Prince” Billy, Devendra Banhart, Avey Tare (of Animal Collective), Farmer Dave, and many more.
The situation throughout the Amazon Basin is dire as indigenous peoples, already facing centuries of systemic oppression, suffer from illness, lack of food, medical supplies and income due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Medical infrastructure has more or less collapsed in many regions and jungle communities are left largely to fend for themselves.
FOLK MEDICINE is an umbrella fundraising concert that supports multiple direct relief campaigns already underway throughout the Amazon. One thousand people can join in on Zoom at tiered donation levels or watch for free on Facebook live. They are aiming to raise $150k to be spread out to relief efforts in need of additional support.
