02 Dec Thomas Buttenschøn – Produced by Thom Russo
Zambian-born Danish musician Thomas Buttenschøn screened his documentary Doin’ My Drugs in China at the HIV Awareness Week in Shanghai and Beijing. Buttenschøn recorded a full studio album in Los Angeles and Lusaka, Zambia, with 16-time Grammy-winning producer and GPS client Thom Russo. The album is also titled Doin’ My Drugs and serves as the official motion picture soundtrack.
“Doin’ My Drugs is Buttenschøn’s story of being born HIV-positive in 1985 and his crusade to use his music to wipe out AIDS in his native Zambia and beyond. The film chronicles Buttenschøn’s life, the death of his parents from AIDS, his emergence as a music star in Denmark and his collaboration with some of Zambia’s finest musicians and performers.” – Billboard
