Red Hot Re-Releases Latin Compilation CD to Benefit Latino HIV/AIDS Programs

July 27, 2006

Red Hot, a not-for-profit organization fighting HIV/AIDS through popular culture, recently re-released a CD titled "Red, Hot & Latin Redux: Silencio equals Muerte" to raise money for HIV/AIDS programs in Latino communities in the U.S. and Latin America, PRI's "The World" -- a production of BBC World Service, PRI and WGBH Boston -- reports (Barrington, "The World," PRI, 7/25). Red Hot's benefit compilation CDs, such as "Red Hot & Dance," "Red Hot & Country" and "Red Hot & Blue," have featured artists such as the Beastie Boys, Branford Marsalis, D'Angelo and Johnny Cash (Kaiser Daily HIV/AIDS Report, 6/6/01). According to Red Hot record producer Paul Heck, the Red Hot series began in 1990 as a "response to how many artists were becoming HIV-positive and dying as a result." Tomas Cookman, executive producer of "Red Hot & Latin Redux," said it was not difficult to get Latin performers to participate in the project because so many artists have been touched by stories of people with HIV/AIDS and "can't but help feel some kindred spirit to the whole cause." The re-release includes all the original tracks on the album, as well as new recordings by the Brazilian Girls, Fishbone, Kinky, Los Fabulosos Cadillacs, Nortec Collective and Plastilina Mosh ("The World," PRI, 7/25).

The complete segment is available online in Windows Media.
