AMAZON COME TOGETHER
RUMBLE INCA JUNGLE
Peace and Conservation
Imagine a gathering of musicians from refugee camps from around the world, who play traditional instruments and music; different religions, languages, cultures and histories, brought together for charity and to help break the world record for the longest performance. 65hours of non-stop jamming accompanied by talented musicians from villages while we sail down the Amazon River. Proving that music is the only positive international language and a great healer of all differences and the only real vessel for peace.
We will go into the refugee camps across the globe to see the devastation and hardship that these people endure everyday, and the daily battle to survive, highlighting the great work being done there by world organisations. To see that even amongst this deprivation, music is lifting spirits, creating smiles and allowing laughter to be back into their lives.
Once we have found our musicians they will join our record-breaking performers and sail down the Amazon River and with the other villages create the most unique musical collaboration ever seen or heard of in the world. A record broken, but a community nurtured.
The whole process is to promote peace, highlight the great work that is being done in the refugee camps and to raise money for conservation of the Amazon. It will have an emphasis on teaching the locals eco-tourism and sustainability, so they can get away from logging which is all they know after generations of losing their culture. Our goal is to help preserve their culture, which in turn will protect the local jungle. The more we educate the more protection we all have.
We are looking for high profile musicians who would like to be involved in any of the below:
- Come to a refugee camp and jam with the musicians, spread the love and help publicize the great work being done to help the refugees
- Write some ideas that the band can jam on the river and then record a few songs with them after the trip
- Come on the journey down the Amazon for the whole 65hours or just for an hour or meet us at one of the village jams
The gig will be streamed live around the world for the world to hold hands for a brighter future. A documentary team is also being assembled. If you’d like to sponsor the event, be a fundraiser or join the team please get in touch with:

Extreme Events, locations and brief:
Amazon Come Together – Rumble Inca Jungle:
Where: Amazon, Peru.
Extreme gig: World record for the longest gig of 65 hours non stop sailing down the Amazon jamming with local villages on route. We will hand pick musicians who play traditional instruments from refugee camps around the world to bring different cultures, religions, languages together in conflict and show the joy only music can bring. We’re hoping to find some celebrities that would like to put their hand up for peace and join this never seen before ensemble of musicians whether it be for an hour , for 4 hours or for the whole trip.
Why: There’s no secret at the speed we are loosing our rainforests. Indigenous tribes are being given back land but they are now 3 generations involved in logging and that’s all they know. We have set up a conservation centre in Peru where we hope to train other tribes in eco tourism and sustainable farming.
Worlds craziest gig:
Where: London, UK.
Extreme gig: A gig in the basket on ascent, then climb on top of the air-balloon and do a gig, jump and do a gig, pull the chute and do a gig and land on a stage and do a gig.
Why: The Active Community built a free creative school in London of a live music venue which also housed 28 families in crisis. We never owned the building and had very little support in the project form the landlords. Our goal is to raise to be able to get our own venue and deliver our self-sustainable education model.
The Plastic Sea:
Where: North Pacific Ocean
Extreme Gig: Concert on a boat made from plastic floating in the North Pacific gyre.
Why: Plastic has a huge detriment on our environment and nowhere more evident that in the North Pacific Gyre. The largest population of the Albatross are dying from being feed plastic, which has been mistaken for seafood, especially with bright colours. Asia’s use of plastics has grown by 1000’s of percent in the last 2 decades with very little education on it’s detriment to the eco system, not just locally but internationally. We will look at alternatives to plastics, education programs, clean up models and what the future has to offer with and without an alternative.
World Coldest gig:
Exteme gig: on an ice berg Why: Global warning is something of a debate amongst different options but what is evident is that communities and animals are facing a huge impact on their ways of life. Suicide is at an alarming rate and we will address reasons why it is so high.
World’s highest gig:
Where: Nepal 7200m
Extreme gig: World record for the highest gig.
Why: Since the earthquakes child trafficking has escalated into horrific proportions and communities are still living and learning in the elements. We will visit a few of the sites in and around the epi centres and see the uphill battle these communities face, we’ll engage with the street children of Kathmandu and cook them breakfasts. We then move to the centre of Nepal to a remote trek where we jam our way up and down the mountain meeting remote villages along the way and breaking the world record for the highest gig while we’re at it.
Base Jump Song:
Where: Cave of Swallows – Mexico
Why: Info is coming.
