What we wanna do:

I’d like to invite you to be a part of something great. Grupo Arcano (www.grupoarcano.com) is recording its first album, and scheduling a tour of the East Coast and Canada.  We are ready to take our Brooklyn/Queens indie style of salsa beyond the local stage.

Increasing our exposure:

We want to bring our music to the listening and dancing audiences outside of New York City.  We have received many requests for radio interviews from stations in Florida, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Connecticut, Texas, New York and Canada, but in order to make the most of these opportunities, we need a full-length CD. 

With a CD that DJs all over the country can promote, we will be able bring a new wave of salsa to the rest of the nation with Grupo Arcano's 'Salsa de la Buena!' Brooklyn sound. 

Steps to the next level:

1 - Finish making our album, Despegando, which, even in its unfinished form, has already received airplay throughout the US and Canada.

2 - Honor the requests of the many radio and club DJs who have been asking for Grupo Arcano's CD.

3 - Perform in the dozens of cities across America where DJs are spreading the word about Grupo Arcano's cutting edge Brooklyn sound.

What your contributions will help make happen:

Your donations will help us to finish our full-length CD, Despegando.

They will help us to pay for a graphic design for the CD cover.

They will help manufacture the CD for mass distribution.

They will help offset transportation and food costs when we bring our show on the road.

But, most of all, they will help make our dream come true.

So...

If you can, be generous.  Help take us to the next step and let the rest of the country hear what the new wave of Salsa sounds like.  But, don't take my word for it, check us out at www.grupoarcano.com and get your FREE download of our hit single "LLUVIA VIENE".
