GLOBAL GHETTO-TECH-->FREE Download ORU (Nigerian Kuduro) by BLND!--> Learn the Truth about the ORU Refugee Camp in Lagos, Nigeria

Music is the weapon  music is the weapon of the future.”
Fela Anikulapo Kuti

Yes, indeed. Music is the Weapon and the Healing Power of the Future. 
And the Hi-NRG uptempo beats of Kuduro music seem to be the right tool for the job. 
According to Ghetto-Tech ambassador M.I.A., Kuduro "initially came from kids not having anything to make music on other than cellphones, using samples they'd get from their PCs and mobiles' sound buttons,' it's a rave-y, beat oriented sound. Now that it's growing, they've got proper PCs to make music on."
Further Readings: If you wanna know more on the subject, I suggest you this article, clearly explaining 

And now, let's go back to the main subject...
Imagine a refugee camp in Lagos, Nigeria. The Oru Refugee Camp is " providing temporary shelter for scores of Liberians and Sierra Leoneans in the heat of fierce wars that ravaged the countries some few years ago. "
The Oru Refugee Camp is operated by United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR)...

Now, stop imaging, because 3000 people are still in  there even after its "technical" closure in 2007, with
no support from UNHCR, ICRC, Nigerian Government and NGOs.
This is why BLND! wants you to Listen, Learn,FREE Download and SHARE this phat track of Nigerian Kuduro called "Oru".
