In the 1980s, a young adventurer and collector for a government library, Abdel Kader Haidara, journeyed across the Sahara Desert and along the Niger River, tracking down and salvaging tens of thousands of ancient Islamic and secular manuscripts that were crumbling in the trunks of desert farmers. His goal was to preserve this crucial part of the world’s patrimony in a gorgeous library. But then Al Qaeda showed up at the door.
It was 1952, and polio had reached outbreak levels in America. There was no known cause, no cure, and no help in sight for parents desperate to protect their children. Our nation's hope was placed in a 33-year-old scientist, working from a basement lab in Pittsburgh. His name was Jonas Salk, and in just a few years, he would bring infantile paralysis to its knees and change the course of medical history. Travel back to a world gripped in fear and see how Dr. Salk, with his dedicated staff, a young charity, and a faithful nation, came together to conquer polio.
"Ten pieces to save the world" - what the hell make three musicians from Cracow and their record company believe that they will save the world with their music? The ancient greeks had a good word for that: HYBRIS - boldness does not contain the same real and implied meaning. What Prometheus did was hybris: challenging the Gods. To be honest: we are not sure to get through with it. But we are very sure that it's worth to try. Because deep in our hearts we know that if anything could save this world it's music. However, this CD may not save the world - but it will make the world a bit better for those who are ready to listen with an open heart.
