We want to share with you a track we produced along with Espen at Caravan Records earlier this year featuring  Maya Acuzena, Lady JayDee, Fid Q, Okai Musik, Mzungu Kichaa, Mrisho MpotoMama C.

Please listen to Mama Creator... the song.. 

From MDGFive.com:

"Mama Creator" is a new song for maternal health that was written and recorded in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania with top artists from New York City and Tanzania.
Featuring: Maya Acuzena, Lady JayDee, Fid Q, Okai Musik, Mzungu Kichaa, Mrisho Mpoto & Mama C.
The song is intended to raise awareness about the challenges facing women in pregnancy and childbirth in Tanzania - one of 11 countries that comprise 65 per cent of all maternal deaths worldwide.
The song will be released with a mini-documentary produced by Emmy-award winning filmmaker and MDGFive.com co-founder, Lisa Russell, that documents the creative process behind the production of the song as well as encourages other UN/NGO agencies worldwide to incorporate artists in their maternal health outreach.
MDGFive.com is co-founded by Maya Azucena and Lisa Russell who are using their collective networks in both the creative and humanitarian fields to bring greater awareness to maternal health and MDG #5. The project was funded by UNFPA Tanzania.
