After using Roots And Wisdom music for social and cultural causes in North America, Mexico and Central America for so many years, now seems like the appropriate time to use the experiences learned, to work in Africa, precisely in the town of Akwukwu-Igbo, in Delta State of Nigeria. What is going on in Akwukwu-Igbo? The same as in many rural areas of Africa, Mexico and Central America, where the young people are abandoning the rural lands for the cities; as such, leaving behind only old men to farm the land.

Through the Akwukwu-Igbo Cultural Trust fund, Roots And Wisdom pledges all the profits from the sales of this new CD "Back to the Roots", to fund a program of sustainable agriculture in Akwukwu-Igbo, using the power of music and the cooperation of young men and women of Akwukwu-Igbo who will dare to join together to return to a new culture of farming in benefit of the whole town. Akwukwu-Igbo Cultural Trust will lease lands for farming, and employ, and use a volunteer force to launch a campaign of "Feed the People". The details and tactics that will be employed to run this program will be worked out with organizations that are already working on the ground in the town of Akwukwu-Igbo, and through the recomendations of Akwukwu progressive unions.
