Wapapura: A solar powered music studio

Rafa Kotcherha is one of the creators of Wapapura, a solar powered recording studio. Due to its unique ability, Wapapura is able to record in previously inaccessible settings such as the Amazon rainforest and a 9th century Monastery in Spain. The power of the sun also helps him stream via satellite to the internet, as a means of sharing the connection between music and nature to a global audience.
