Martinsville, NJ (PRWEB) December 19, 2013
Coming off their successful benefit concert on October 9th at the Bowery Electric in Manhattan, local non-profit Water Ecuador and Ecuadorian singer-songwriter Cecilia Villar Eljuri are teaming up again. Eljuri will release an exclusive LIVE single, Empuja, through Hotathon.com. Fans and supporters can pay an amount of their choice to download the song, and all proceeds will go towards building a water center on Puná, a rural island off of the coast of Ecuador that currently lacks access to purified water.
Cecilia Villar Eljuri and Alex Harding, the founder of Water Ecuador, met in 2008 when both were starting out on their careers following their passions—Cecilia to write and perform her own music on a global stage as a solo artist and Alex to spread good health by providing access to clean water throughout Ecuador. Since then they have supported each other's visions, leading to this initiative to build a water center on Isla Puná. Water Ecuador, focused on solutions to comprehensively address the global water crisis, runs six sustainable water centers in rural Ecuador that provide clean water to over 2,000 people daily. http://www.WaterEcuador.org
Eljuri is an Ecuadorian singer-songwriter who is touted as one of the top Latina guitarists in the world. Her message of empowerment motivates a diverse audience from young children, to a vibrant youth and seasoned music lovers of all ages and cultures. http://www.eljurimusic.com
Cecilia Villar Eljuri describes her song: "Empuja is a classic reggae tune infused with my Latin flavor. The lyrics empower us to reach out to help others, fight oppression and move towards change. This live recording really grooves and captures the energy of the Benefit Concert which kicked off my campaign to raise money to build a clean water center with Water Ecuador. The rhythm duo, Alex Alexander (drums) and Johnny Pisano (bass) strut to my latin guitar style...our power trio at its best!"
