"After the success of volume one of the Goa Chillout Zone compilation we decided to increase the push that the compilation series gets from us and our media partners, this compilation was our way of getting together artists for a worthy cause and at the same time promote them on a major level" says Wanda Alvares, Executive Vice President / Head of Marketing "The result of the support and marketing of this album by W.O.A Records worldwide saw several of the Goa Chillout Zone artists being picked up by Universal Music Australia for their World Lounge Cafe series, various TV series and 2 major Feature films. Also we are continuing our plan of giving back to a cause we believe passionately in which is animal welfare. For every CD sold, we will give 10% of the sale to a charity that supports animal welfare."
With the governments in many countries not providing facilities or funding to help stray animals it is a sad state of affairs for all animals.
