Everything is New Project release two albums featuring a host of stars


Everything is New, the international outreach project created by Transgressive North in aid of Dalit 'untouchable' children in southeast India, brings together seven years of work, over several continents, with over a thousand contributors, all working for free. Proceeds from the project go to the charity Scottish Love in Action which feeds, clothes, houses, educates and provides medical care for over 500 children by funding the Light of Love Home and School in southeast India.

The project consists of two separate music releases out January 20 -- Marram’s Sun Choir featuring Jarvis Cocker, Owen Pallett, doseone, White Hinterland and Margaret Bennett And BOATS by various artists including Four Tet, Dan Deacon, Bear in Heaven, Califone, Deerhoof, El Guincho, Gang Gang Dance, Lucky Dragons, Julian Lynch, Max Tundra, No Age, The Ruby Suns, Rustie, Son Lux, Sun Airway, A Sunny Day in Glasgow, Taken By Trees, Jamie Stewart (Xiu Xiu), YACHT and many more. Both feature the voices of Light of Love Children's Choir, which is made up of the voices of the children from the Light of Love Home and School.

The Everything is New Project grew from a dialogue between the artists of the Scottish-based arts collective Transgressive North (TN), and the charity, Scottish Love in Action (SLA). In 2006, Transgressive North member Jenny Chambers had visited the SLA-funded Light of Love Children's Home in Tuni (Andhra Pradesh, southeast India) and found it an intensely positive institution deserving serious engagement and investment. Jenny convinced artists in the Transgressive North to enter a dialogue with SLA and collectively, the TN found they were deeply compelled by the plight of Dalit “untouchable” children. The notion of “untouchability” - that some children might be told they were less valuable than others - inspired the TN to develop the Everything is New Project as a vehicle to empower and support the children of the Light of Love Children's Home. The founding idea was to use the cultural forms which the children themselves found the most meaningful - popular music and cinema - to build funds and awareness in a project in which the children would participate. The project would attempt to counter any inherited preconceptions the children might have about their own value and legitimacy by giving them the opportunity to “star” in music and film works specifically designed to celebrate and empower their identities and means of expression.
