Overview

Nandha Blues' second album, “Nandha Strikes Again”, includes nine original songs and, like our previous record, the music pays tribute to the traditions and roots of blues and southern rock while being enhanced by an orginal, fine Italian flavour. The cover artwork is by the fantastic American artist Peter Nogas, a.k.a. Psychodelik Pete, who has reinterpreted the image of the witch Nandha, from which the band takes its name, in an Afro-American style.

 Who we are:

 Max Arrigo is the founder of the Nandha Blues a classic rock band with a southern flavour,  well known for his fine slide guitar work played mostly in standard and open tune. He has been the leader of well known southern rock bands  as Voodoo Lake (1999/2006) and Shanghai Noodle Factory(2006/2010)  He’s also appreciated for his soulful voice, which has been compared to the singers who pioneered this kind of music. Over the years, he has shared European stages with several artists and bands from all over the world: Marcus King Band, North Mississippi Allstars, Delta Moon from Atlanta Georgia, Marc Ford (Black Crowes & Ben Harper),Hook Herrera ( Gov’t Mule and Willy DeVille), Jono Manson, Johnny Neel & W.I.N.D.,Steepwater band, Mauro Pagani (P.F.M.), Savoy Truffle, Joe Pitts and the Liquid Groove Mojo, Andy Penington, Pat Savage, Rebel Storm, Flatman, The Cell, Ulysses (UK) and many more. Nandha  is an international musical project, since 2010,  including the talented Italian musicians Alberto Fiorentino on Bass, Roberto Tassone on drums. That which brings the band members together is a taste for improvisation based on blues, rock and a little jazz. A formula of age-old traditions but one which has remained relevant and which goes straight to the heart, used as a means of entering into harmony with the cosmos.

Risks and challenges

Our goal:
This campaign is basically a pre-order system for fans to get the new album as well as new merchandise . This Kickstarter campaign will help us fund the production of this album from start to finish. Our goal is to stay independent so that we may maintain complete control of our creative output as a band. Funding this project helps us keep things that way.
Our goal is to record, mix, master and produce a high quality Nandha album. We are also planning on producing new merchandise for our fans, such as new t-shirts featuring Peter Nogas' artwork and stickers showing Nandha's logo.

How we’ll get the job done:
Our budget breakdown for this project:
Euro 3000 for recording/mixing/mastering
Euro 3,475 for merchandise and physical album production
Euro 650 for graphic design work (album layout and merchandise layout)
Euro 375 will go to Kickstarter if we reach our goal
Thank you!
Love,
Nandha Blues
