On Febuary 27, 2010 an 8.8 earthquake stuck off the coast of Chile. Nacional Records founder Tomas Cookman was actually in Chile with Argentina’s Los Fabulosos Cadillacs at ViÃ±a del Mar for the festival when the earthquake struck. Nacional Records then put together a benefit CD assembled by various Chilean artists with proceeds going to earthquake relief.
The CD consist of 11 songs for $5.99, which is a deal since the songs are sold individually for $0.99 each. You might notice that several of the songs are actually from Violeta Parra being interpreted by modern Chilean musicians.
