New York, NY - The Afrobeat Sudan Aid Project (A.S.A.P.) has raised over $120,000 in aid money for the victims of ethnic violence in Darfur.

"A.S.A.P." is a benefit compilation featuring the hottest new Afrobeat acts around the globe, alongside former Fela Kuti bandmates Kaleta, Dele Sosimi, Baba Olajagun, and a classic Tony Allen track with Fela himself.

"A.S.A.P." reached the Top 25 overall and #1 on the world charts of the iTunes Music Store when it was released. It has been praised by Pitchfork Media as "a phenomenal introduction to modern Afropop" and was listed among Afropop Worldwide's Top 10 for 2004. Milwaukee Magazine calls the album a "great introduction to the extensive catalog of Afrobeat, and also to the next generation of musicians that have inherited a way to move minds, hearts and bodies like a riptide. Buy it for everyone you know."

100% of proceeds from the album have been sent to groups working on the ground in Darfur refugee camps distributing food, water, and medicine to the hundreds of thousands who are in need.
