When I read Vidya Sury’s  stirring piece, A Cup of Peace,  and Damyanthi Biswas’ compelling post, Is There Hope in 2014?, both written for a fantastic cause, I knew I wanted to do my bit for this  too. It’s another thing that I lost my heart to that country when I spent almost a month there in 1994. The people of the Philippines will always be close to my heart.

Composers For Relief Supporting The Philippines as explained by Samantha Redstreake Geary here  is a fantastic collaboration of music composers and writers collaborating to raise funds for relief to the victims of the Super Typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan) that hit the Philippines in November 2013. The details of the music album can be found here.

Today is the cover reveal of the e-book anthology that was inspired by this music. This beautiful collaborative effort is called ‘Beyond The Binding‘.
