Illuminate - Zion Train - WW060

Release 1st May 2020 'Illuminate' tries to show the positives in our dystopian existence. The album was created by Zion Train to foster a view of humanity's positive alternatives for the future..

This release represents the first original Zion Train album in 5 years and features 9 vocalists alongside extremely talented musicians. Vocalists include Cara, Michel Grena Prince Jamo and Rider Shafique whilst amongst the musicians are such luminaries as Paolo Baldini, Don Fe and Gianni Denitto.

Zion Train are working alongside the Stop Ecocide and Extinction Rebellion campaigns with the release of this music to help attempts to build a brighter future for our planet – to this end we are reprinting the Leap Manifesto authored by Naomi Klein and friends with this release.
