TODAY!!, TAARKA is participating in a fundraiser called #FolkFightsBack. We will be donating ALL PROFITS from digital album sales (even our new album!) at on that day to the International Refugee Assistance Project which has an incredible history of providing aid to immigrants and refugees where they need it the most – in the courts, to defend their due process and human rights, and in DC, where they have successfully fought to enact laws that offer life-saving visas and legal protections to hundreds of thousands. Head to our bandcamp page to help this wonderful organization do its work! Thanks to Melody Walker for letting us know about this and Folk Fights Back for existing!
