“When I came up with the concept of the Goa Chillout Zone compilation album in 2008 we never expected the album to become such a highly sought after album in so many countries, it even got listed in the iTunes World Roots Library” says Oliver Sean, Founder & President of W.O.A International – The Music Co., “the compilation was never intended for commercial purposes, rather it was a way to promote great independent music and also to help support animal welfare by giving 10% of all sales to animal welfare and till today 90% of the cds replicated are given away free to promote the Goa Chillout Zone brand and the artists and from any sales we make 10% is directly utilized for animal welfare”
One constant of the Goa Chillout Zone series has been the 10% sales revenue being donated to animal welfare. The situation of animals and their welfare is in dire straits in many regions of the world, it’s a situation that’s continuously in the news and the openly displayed animal cruelty is alarming. W.O.A International recognizes that it’s something that won’t be changed overnight, but passionately believe that continued support in the fight against it will eventually win through.
The Goa Chillout Zone Vol. 4 compilation this year consists of 30 artists from all over the world who have been selected by Platinum Selling Singer-Songwriter/
The Goa Chillout Zone CD Vol. 4 is the fourth release in the planned five-volume collection, with the first three volumes breaking records and topping several album and retail charts. Bringing together the best that W.O.A International has to offer as well as unsigned independent artists worldwide, the Goa Chillout Zone compilations continue to amaze media, radio stations and other major labels that now regularly tap into the W.O.A Records Goa Chillout Zone songs and artists for their own compilations and collaborations.
