Hello friends,

I write to you to in order to inform you about my Kickstarter project, This project, entitled “LUZ”, entails the production and release of a new CD with new compositions.  Most of the CD has already been recorded, and the funding will pay for post production, including mixing, mastering, art work and pressing.  Two new compositions (and I mean "NEW", since they were written last week) need yet to be recorded.

A few months ago, I launched my very first Kickstarter project,and although we were very close, we fell short on reaching our goal. The project was not funded, and all the pledges were returned to the original donors.I was perhaps too ambitious, by trying to release a new CD, a new DVD and produce a concert, all at the same time. I am extremely grateful to each and every one of you for your support and generosity.  This time I am concentrating in only one item, the CD, and our goal is a lot easier to reach, as a matter of fact, we were able to collect more funding the first time than what is needed this second time in order for the project to be successful. 

For those of you who do not know me, I am a composer/percussionist from Costa Rica. I came to the USA in 1974. Since then, I have been able to make a living as an artist, performing in some of the best Jazz festivals and venues in the world. I have many recordings, both, in the USA and abroad, often earning numerous accolades from the music media worldwide. My first project was "COSTA RICA-COSTA RICA", a recording commissioned in 1980 by the Costa Rican government. My latest release, “INVISIBLE (2010), is a conceptual project created in dedication to the poor, the sick, the homeless, the true “Invisible” ones of the world. I was given an ACAM award by the Costa Rican Society of Authors and Composers as “Jazz Composer and Producer of the Year” for this newest recording. The same was true for my 2006 CD“VIDA”.

"LUZ" features a wonderful group of artists, including the singers Téka Penteriche from Brazil http://www.newbossa.com/  and Magos Herrera from Mexico http://www.magosherrera.com/

I thank you in advance for your support and generosity, and hope to hear from you soon.

Best regards!
