“Ni Chikondi (About Love)” is a special song released by Heartcore Records in collaboration with the Mthunzi Orphan Center in Lusaka, Zambia. All the proceeds from a year of digital sales funded the purchase of musical equipment for the center, that currently houses over fifty children. Co-written by Kurt Rosenwinkel and the children, the song also features Aaron Parks and Dave Douglas as guest performers.

After July 2018 every purchase will support future projects “Heartcore for the World” such as a upcoming project “Heartcore for India” in 2018.
