Tom Waits, Philip Glass on Healing the Divide benefit disc

Posted May 23rd, 2007 by Eric Greenwood · No Comments

Billboard reports that the Anti- label is putting out a benefit CD/DVD for Healing the Divide’s Tibetan Health Initiative, featuring Tom Waits, Philip Glass, and Anoushka Shankar. The concert was held back in 2003 at New York’s Avery Fisher Hall. Waits played with Greg Cohen and the Kronos Quartet, and he makes up the bulk of the disc. Richard Gere is all up in this cause, which makes me want to ignore it, but Tom Waits outweighs all the cons, especially when he’s playing with the Kronos Quartet.

Here is the track list for Healing the Divide:

Dalai Lama speech

“Invocation,” Gyoto Tantric Choir

“Nivedan,” Anoushka Shankar

“Peace Chants,” Nawang Khechong and R. Carlos Nakai

“The Gambia,” Philip Glass and Foday Musa Suso

“Way Down in the Hole,” Tom Waits w/ Kronos Quartet and Greg Cohen

“God’s Away on Business,” Tom Waits w/ Kronos Quartet and Greg Cohen

“Lost in the Harbor,” Tom Waits w/ Kronos Quartet and Greg Cohen

“Diamond in Your Mind,” Tom Waits w/ Kronos Quartet and Greg Cohen
