This is the OFFICIAL Kickstarter fundraiser for Watoto From The Nile. Let's help start a music revolution!
Watoto From The Nile is a group of young princesses from their hometown of Harriet Tubman City (Baltimore, Maryland). They have come to breath life back into a destructive music culture that's on life support. Through their musical talents, they silence the notion of our youth being lost and uncontrollable. Ranging from elementary to middle school, Mary Angel, Nia, Nya, and Kamaria are a young thought provoking, inspirational, socially and culturally conscious music group.
In 2010, Watoto From the Nile, after months of writing and recording, released their first hit song, 'I Won't Quit,' inspiring us all to persevere throughout life's challenges.
About six months later in late February 2011, Watoto From the Nile released 'Letter to Lil'Wayne,' a riveting message aimed at challenging negative Black stereotypes and images, especially toward Black women, in commercial hip hop. This video and song was featured on their MIXTAPE which can be downloaded for FREE at datpiff.com.
The music video became a YouTube.com sensation with over ONE MILLION views and was also featured on WorldStarHipHop.com, arguably the most popular Hip Hop website in the world. Since the release of 'Letter to Lil'Wayne,' Watoto From The Nile has been featured on NEWS ONE, CNN, XXL, Yahoo music, AOL, the Tom Joyner Morning Show, The Larry Young Morning Show, Marc Steiner's show, and a host of other internet radio programs and blogs.
They also just released a BRAND NEW music video targeted at raising awareness about the murder of Trayvon Martin. Within a few months, it has gained over 11,000 views on Youtube!
Now receiving hundreds of emails from supporters, bloggers, reporters, and community activists, Watoto From the Nile is working diligently to finalize an official album and mixtape to be released by December 31,2012. Recording, Marketing and Distributing a quality album can be VERY EXPENSIVE!!!
Some of the costs include:
■Professional studio recording sessions
■Professional mixing and mastering of each song
■Professional packaging and duplication of the album
■Performance and vocal training classes
■Marketing products and services
■Travel expenses to spread our positive message throughout the country
The money raised through Kickstarter will assist in the recording, marketing, and distribution of the Watoto From the Nile debut album and mixtape. The music industry spends BILLIONS of dollars on music that promotes negative stereotypes and images of Black youth, and ultimately DEATH and DESTRUCTION of an entire generation. So while FIVE THOUSAND dollars may seem like alot; it is a small investment to assist in transforming the current state of hip hop culture.
