About this project

I am sharing my new project, El Camino, with you in hopes that you will support “Andrés Flores y los hijos de José.” We have been working hard for the last four years to bring you our best music. The culmination of this project is the recording of a CD titled “El Camino", which will be recorded by Greg Landau in his studio, in Oakland, CA. Greg is an excellent musician and arranger but above all, a good friend, as are all of the people who participated in this project. Some of these musicians include Russell Rodríguez, Federico Zuñiga, Quetzal Flores, Martha González, Marisol “La Marisoul” Hernández, among many others. All of these colleagues and friends have come together to share in in creation of this original project. The songs are inspired by the communities with whom I’ve walked alongside these past years and the friends I’ve made on this journey. Ustedes son el camino! You are all part of this path, this Camino. Your contribution will allow Andrés Flores y los Hijos de José to take you on a sonic journey through Southern Veracruz, to Southern California and all the way to the Bay Area with their music, poetry and verse. 

 We need your support for this album to record, edit, mix, print and begin a new part of this camino, this path we are on. To thank you for your support, we are offering some very cool incentives! 

 We appreciate your help and ask to please share and promote this campaign among friends and colleagues. Thank you!

Risks and challenges

The risks and challenges of completing this project is managing the time invested, keeping track of rewards, and establishing a manageable budget that covers intended and applicable costs. Though my background is not in fundraising I am able to create and manage a budget for programming, which could apply to this. In the same sense between the various participants on the project team we will be able to ensure backer rewards are produced, processed and sent. It will be through the team that the distribution/promotion of this project campaign will be far reaching.
We are not participating in any current project and we are working closely with the producing label for this CD project in that they know what steps are being taken to fund this production.
