The “Rhino” collaboration was conceived at the height of the pandemic, during the first quarantine, with all of life-human & beast-scrambling for safety and security. The project took on the soundtrack of the times.
“Tracks with such vulnerability and heart – you can hear it and even more poignantly for me because these are my friends playing so generously and graciously. I was so touched by that every time a track came in. I am awake thinking tonight of international friends, family and wishing you and all our world’s most vulnerable and endangered beasties safety and calm. This music is our gift to you.” – Linda Cushma
