Portal for Craig’s Afro-fusion band, the Ganda Boys. These three world musicians and singers met on the BBC-TV prime time television series project Moses Jones (starring Matt Smith, Sean Parkes, Dennis Waterman and Eammon Walker), which garnered Craig Pruess a BAFTA Nomination for Best Original Music. The soundtrack featured four live African-fusion numbers as part of the drama, creating a music score that London’s Metro newspaper said: “pulses with surely the TV soundtrack of the year”. The Ganda Boys have been championed by international humanitarian organisations around the world, and their music has been used in other TV series (ITV’s “The Jury”) and World Peace One, Syrian Refugee Campaign active in Europe during 2015.
Craig’s CDs available, plus info on Sacred Chants CDs. There’s a world of music in these CDs, spanning over 27 years of recording and journeying through sound. Heaven on Earth Music was founded in 1977 and is a unique vision of world fusion music, through the eyes and ears of a world musician, film composer and multi-instrumantalist. A whole range of rich world music instrumentation is combined with an experienced and detailed recording craft which has made these CDs popular in over 80 countries. It is music soaked in joy and positivity, musical virtuosity, imaginative arrangements and beautifully rendered recordings of sonic excellence for resonant power.
The Ganda Boys founded this UK registered charity in 2009 to raise funds for hospitals, schools and aid projects in Uganda. Their fund-raising concerts and media coverage have created very positive and life-changing progress, even having an impact in the Parliament of the central Ugandan government. Craig Pruess, CEO of the Ganda Foundation, has said: “Music is a powerful tool for social transformation, if it used in the right way, with the right intention. It is time for the musicians and media personalities to step forward and inspire people everywhere for positive change in this world.” The Ganda Foundation is championed by the world media humanitarian organisation, World Peace One, plus the highly respected International Association for Human Values.
