Today we’re proud to partner with Stand For Trees, giving you the chance to be a part of a global movement!
Stand For Trees is an environmental organization that is taking action to combat the growing climate crisis, their purpose is to protect the world’s most spectacular forests while aiding the indigenous and local communities that call them home. They’ve teamed up with Simón Mejía from Colombian electronic music sensation, Bomba Estéreo, calling all producers to remix “Chibi Chibi''!
For the upcoming Stand For Trees film, Simón went on an adventure to learn about the vast Pacific Rainforest Network in Colombia. Sampling various instruments, chants, and nature sounds from Afro-Columbian and indigenous communities, he wrote “Chibi Chibi'' to share the power of the experience in a language that can be understood by the entire world, music. We’re calling on the SKIO community to come together and help make a positive impact through music, regardless of one’s age, education, race, gender or ethnicity.
Your participation in this contest will help promote the Pacific Rainforest Network in Colombia, helping indigenous and local communities sustain their heritage by battling deforestation. This is a big deal, as this will prevent ten million tons of carbon emissions, while bringing improved wages and important services such as health centers and schools to 60,000 people.
Be sure to submit your best work by April 6th, as the winning remix will be featured as the soundtrack to the Official Stand For Trees Teaser video for their upcoming film, helping you gain massive exposure!
The teaser will be available on the day of the winner announcement - April 17th.
Prizes also include Two (2) General Admission tickets to a Bomba Estéreo show during their upcoming album tour, 1 yr access to pro plugins from Slate Digital’s “All Access Pass”, and much more!

PS: If you'd like to know what is being said at the beginning of Chibi Chibi here's the translation:
We listen to the sound of the birds like the old and wise
There are birds that sing like the music of the flute
And every melody has a meaning
The dance of the hummingbirds
The turkey buzzards as they fly
They seem to dance to the rhythm of the melody
Dance to the rhythm of the music
