THE GREAT PLANET EARTH DEBATE, a non-profit organization, has launched their project concerts throughout the US.

  3. 3. IGNACIO PEÑA Born in San Juan, Puerto Rico, Ignacio Peña got his B.A. in Music Production and Engineering at Berklee College of Music. In 2001 Peña released his debut album, "El Mundo Al Revés" which earned him rave reviews from the critics: "Singer/songwriter Ignacio Peña's first outing, on Universal, is a lovely collection of pop tracks that evoke everything from Eric Clapton to Oasis. Thanks to thoughtful, well-written lyrics that never fall into triteness, this manages to be an album without a single throwaway track." Billboard Magazine After touring throughout Latin America and the U.S., sharing the stage with the likes of Roger Waters, Eric Clapton, and Oasis, Peña reinvented himself by presenting his second album, “Anormal”, with an audiovisual show entitled “Phono/Grafico” the likes of which had never been seen in the Latin market. This opened up his possibilities as an artist and communicator immediately putting him in a class all of his own as a multimedia creator and musician at the forefront who also presented his music with visual ideas which he put together himself while composing the music.
  4. 4. In 2005, Peña relocated with his band to Austin,Texas. It was there where he was invited to perform at a secondary school event about climate change. This opportunity opened up his eyes to the idea of merging his musical and visual artistic abilities to create educational experiences that would serve as a tool to better get the message across to a younger audience. “THE GREAT PLANET EARTH DEBATE” is his work of the last 3 years. The music, the editing, the story, the message, the information and the research all has been personally put together by him creating an educational experience unlike any has ever been seen.
