BFM Digital, a leading digital music aggregator and distributor of
independent music, announces the release of the album "Jamtse: Love
and Compassion - An Offering to The Tibet Fund". This digital
compilation features such renowned artists as Nawang Khechog, Snatam
Kaur, Jai Uttal, Deva Premal, Omar Faruk Tekbilek, MC Yogi, Toshinori
Kondo, Krishna Das, Bill Laswell and more. Top independent record
labels Sounds True, Spirit Voyage, White Swan, New Earth Records,
Wah! Music, Alif Records and others, all donated tracks to this worthy cause.

"JAMTSE" (which means love and compassion in Tibetan) is the first
digital-only release from BFM Digital and proceeds will go
exclusively to The Tibet Fund in support of their work.

This project, conceived by producers Joshua Jacobs (Ambient Groove, a
division of Synaptic Fusion Entertainment) and Steven Weber
(President, BFM Digital), is intended to act as an instrument to
bring awareness toward the current plight of the Tibetan people. Each
track was hand picked by Jacobs to focus on healing through sound
vibration and mantra. The musical genres include World, New Age,
Meditation, Chant, and Yoga.

"It was a blessing to have this opportunity to bring together music
from diverse cultures and traditions in support of the Tibetan
people, " says Joshua Jacobs "The enthusiasm and support far exceeded
our expectations from the very first day we mentioned the project to
our colleagues in the business" says Steven Weber. "We are proud to
present this special project on behalf of our artists, labels and
publishers whose generosity in donating proceeds from the sale of
"JAMSTE" will benefit the full range of outreach, assistance and
educational services The Tibet Fund provides."
