Wisaal - An Arabic word meaning links, connections, or unities - reflects our attempt to fuse elements of the Arabic musical heritage with Klezmer, Indian and American influences while respecting the spirit of these traditions.   

Wisaal has been playing all over Michigan and recently won and award from Michigan State University for promoting diversity. So... it's high time we made a full-length album. The best thing about supporting this album is... YOU GET SOMETHING OUT OF THIS.  You are basically pre-ordering the album so that we can make it happen.

 

What exactly is the money for?

We have the money to do the actual recording process and will be in the studio March 20th (Like us on facebook to follow the antics.) But we need money to finish it and actually make the CDs... and the graphics... and the licensing... and putting it on iTunes... etc. etc. etc. 

This will cover mastering, making discs, graphics, licensing, promotional materials, shipping costs, t-shirts, Kickstarter’s cut -  with some room for error in case we have missed anything.

Thanks for checking this out!  We think this is going to be a really great album and hope you can be a part of it.
