This new album features LGBTI musicians from all over the world

This new album features LGBTI musicians from all over the world
- Swedish artist and activist Petter Wallenberg composed and produced the album. He was inspired to do so after witnessing brutal anti-LGBTI violence by police at last year’s Ugandan Pride festival. All proceeds from the album will go to Wallenberg’s charity of the same name, dedicated to ending anti-LGBTI discrimination globally.
‘Imagine that your very existence is a crime and that the police, authorities, and lynch mobs chase you simply because you are who you are,’ Wallenberg states. ‘I created Rainbow Riots as a movement to fight for freedom against tyranny.’
The album has an eclectic sound, with elements of afrobeat, electro, soul, pop, orchestral, rap, dancehall, gospel, and spoken word.
