Masstropicas along with limafotolibre.com plan on taking a trip to the jungle in January to record and document new cumbia groups.
Masstropiocas and limafotolibre.com will be traveling to the jungle in January to travel up the Ucayali River in Peru to record and document a new cumbia movement that is happening and produce and manufacture a 7" and LP from the recordings.
We need your support for plane tickets, travel expenses, equipment for both the bands, recording, payment to the bands and film for limafotolibre. We plan on recording 3-4 different bands in the span of 7 days and this will be a very busy project for the both of us.
Those who donate will get up to date information about the project. Your donations will go towards making this wonderful project happen and masstropicas will take care of making the 7" and LP.
If masstropicas/limafotolibre.com meet the goal expect a 7" and LP by spring, please look at the prizes you will get when you donate! At the top there is a video that masstropicas/limafotolibre.com did 2 years ago with an amazing street musician named Carlos Antonio, we ended up pressing it on cassette, we gave carlos any proceeds that were made. We plan on making this project slightly bigger in coverage and the bands will also receive any profit that is deserved and get 100% support from masstropicas. Please help us make this dream become a reality!
Check out limafotolibre.com for more video's of past projects and also check out masstropicas.blogspot.com for any info on past projects and other projects not related to this proposal. After our travels there will be updated videos and recordings of the happenings that take place as well, so stay tuned! the masstropicas collective also includes the following people:
