Ivorian international artiste, Constant Boty together with London-based Russian/Polish Jazz vocalist, Tamara Raven has launched a musical project ‘Time to Care’ to raise funds targeting over 200,000 Dollars for the children of Village of Hope orphanage in Gomoa-Fetteh.
Speaking at the launch of this project, the educator and humanitarian who is known for many genres which include jazz, electronic music, and West African folkloric music, Constant Boty says, the project is not for him but to save the lives of children especially at the Village of Hope orphanage home.
‘Time to Care’ a beautiful piece was written by a young poet, Dzidzo Johnson an alumna of Hope Christian Academy, one of Village of Hope’s educational institutions, since 2002. The song with the message “We all need to join hands to give care to those in need of it”, it also features some of the children from the Village of Hope.
In producing the song Constant Boty worked for hand in hand with the music teacher, Araba Hammond, at the Village of Hope who rehearsed the song with the 12 children, she selected. They joined Constant Boty at Destiny Studios in Accra, where they rehearsed under his supervision, to record the song ‘Time to Care’
The lead vocalist on the project, Tamara Raven, recorded her voice from her studio in London, then the sound engineer, Alfred Djarah, put it all together to produce the final mix. The mastering was done in France and was produced by Mevicon services.
According to him, the funds being raised will support the Paediatric wing of the Hope Christian Hospital, who are desperately in need of health equipment and machines to keep unborn babies and new babies with their mothers alive and also support the hospital to take care of patients in the Gomoa-Fetteh environs.
Since 2002, Hope Christian Academy has provided basic education to orphans and vulnerable children, as well as members of the rural Gomoa- Fetteh and surrounding communities in the Central Region of Ghana. Village ofHope exists to save lives and help humanity through childcare, education and healthcare
