Exactly one year ago on 11/11 we released Planetary Coalition’s debut CD, and what a wondrous journey it has been! A huge thank-you to all who supported, encouraged and participated in this project and appreciated the music we offered and continue to do so.

For the holiday season, share our labor of love as the perfect gift.

Here it is! A full album-excerpts video, which helps visualize the regions covered by the varied musical styles and instruments, and gives a glimpse of the musicians during the recording process.

“It started with a lone, handwritten sentence on a notepad, describing a musical vision: “An ethnically flavored collective of musicians from all over the world, driven by acoustic guitar and bringing together inspirational melodies, in-depth improvisation and the passion of the musical styles of Gypsy, Middle Eastern, Indian, Latin, East Asian, Mediterranean, Balkan/Eastern European, African and other indigenous lands.”

“The reality: coordinating over two-dozen musicians from five continents.”

“Yet despite the numerous logistical challenges, Planetary Coalition has been guided by a single hope: that by weaving the threads that connect musical expressions with regional identities, we can bridge the gap between diverse cultures and people, and increase awareness of the ecological and social issues facing the planet, our island in the sky.” – Alex Skolnick

On 11/1 – it’s here: Finally – a single video with excerpts of all 14 tracks! (Please watch in HD if possible)
We are excited that ArtistShare has submitted this album as an official entry in the world music, arranging, composition & soloist categories for the 58th Grammy‬ awards.

The first anniversary of the album’s release – 11/11 is fast approaching and we are happy that so many have reached out and shown appreciation for this album. Please keep spreading the word! Remember – Make Music Not War!
