Nacional Records is proud to announce this week’s release of Fuerza Chile, a digital-only Chile benefit album. The album displays the strength of the country’s thriving music scene with 11 tracks from Chilean artists across Nacional’s catalog. It is available for only $5.99 and all the proceeds are being donated.
Nacional founder Tomas Cookman was in Chile with management and label artist Los Fabulosos Cadillacs for the Vina del Mar Festival when the earthquake occurred. Fortunately no one in the band was injured but Cookman suffered a bruised leg. The group ended up taking a van across the Andes Mountains back to Argentina and were able to witness the devastation firsthand.
Chilean mixmaster Latin Bitman was DJing a massive party when the earthquake occurred. He escaped but within minutes, Bitman noticed that the ceiling had caved exactly where he had been spinning.
