About

A BIT ABOUT US.

Our names are Hayley Dayis from Seattle, WA and Paola Suculima from Cholula, MX and we have created a sisterhood of collaborative music for water called Madre Mariposa. (Mother Butterfly). This campaign is aiming to support the  production of our first  album together and the tour we have planned from Seattle, WA to Puebla, MX in April of 2018.

We invite you to be an ALLY for  Madre Mariposa! The current state of world affairs reminds us daily of our need to TAKE ACTION on environmental, social and economical issues concerning our planet. We have decided to make an album, Madre Mariposa: Songs for Water, to raise awareness and funds for the restoration and better care of our communities’ waters.

LOOKING AT THE WATERS IN OUR OWN HOMES.

The best way to begin this work is to look closely at what is happening in our own local environments. Last year in Seattle, 30 million gallons of raw sewage and untreated runoff poured into Puget Sound because of a sewage plant’s equipment failure and violations of clean water laws.

In Puebla, MX, the main Atoyac River has been polluted consistently for decades. 80% of the pollution has been caused by urban discharge, irresponsible companies and governments that have ignored regulation and protection laws for the river. This has recently provoked disease amongst the communities that live near it. 

As we observe all of the actions that can be done around the protection and conservation and restoration of our waters, we propose this tour and music mainly to connect, re educate and remind us of Water being a fundamental component of Life.

OUR MARIPOSA TOUR

We plan to go from Seattle Washington USA to Puebla, Mexico passing through 15 locations and providing a space for our concert gatherings in dear communities from the heart. Like Monach butterflies migrating south, we will be passing through and staying in our communities in Seattle, Portland, California Redwoods, Palm Springs, Oakland, San Francisco, Tijuana, Guadalajara, Mexico City, Cholula, and Puebla. In each of these cities we will be offering a complete set of our album in a concert performance , merch, storytelling  and community conversational space to share our views around the actions on water. We are interested in our direct exchange with our communities as we create and share the collective weaving of stories and actions of our peoples.

WHAT WE KNOW.

WATER IS LIFE. This is something we can all agree on. The songs of our Madre Mariposa project are a potent reminder to remain compassionate stewards of our words and actions towards each other during these charged, challenging times. In an effort to take action on these issues, we are launching this crowd-funding Kickstarter campaign to MAKE OUR MUSIC PROJECT HAPPEN. 

Our mission is to UNITE the people of the US and Mexico in a call for healing, responsibility to our planet, and care for our communities. Join us in this mission by being an ally to our project. The waters need your help!

We thank you in advance for your enthusiasm in sharing our message and proposal. Thank you for your support and love.

In love and deep gratitude, for all of our relations, and a special thanks to Priya Alahan for creating our beautiful video and photographs, Eli Abrams for mastering our album tracks, and Luk Will for his recording equipment.

Love,

Hayley and Paola

UN POCO SOBRE NOSOTRAS.

Nuestros nombres son Hayley Dayis de Seattle, WA y Paola Suculima de Cholula, MX y hemos creado una alianza colaborativa de música para el agua. Esta campaña tiene como objetivo apoyar la producción de nuestro nuevo disco Madre Mariposa y el tour que planeamos de Seattle, WA a Puebla, MX en Abril del 2018. Te invitamos a ser un ALIADO o ALIADA para nuestro proyecto llamado MADRE MARIPOSA! El estado actual del mundo ahora nos recuerda a diario la importancia de tomar ACCIÓN en temas ambientales, sociales y económicos de nuestro planeta. Hemos decidido crear nuestro proyecto Madre Mariposa, cantos para el Agua, para reforzar consciencia y fondos para la restauración y cuidado de las aguas de nuestras comunidades.

ANALIZANDO EL CONTEXTO DEL AGUA EN CASA.

La mejor manera de empezar este trabajo es analizando lo que está ocurriendo en nuestros propios ambientes en casa. En el 2017, en Seattle, 30 millones de galones de aguas negras contaminaron el PUGET SOUND a causa de violaciones de leyes que protegen al agua. 

 En Puebla, México, el río principal llamado Atoyac ha sido constantemente contaminado por décadas. 80% de la contaminación ha sido causada por industrias y gobiernos que han volcado sus residuos inorgánicos al río, igorando así regulaciones y leyes protectoras del agua. Ésto ha recientemente provocado enfermedad en algunas comunidades que viven cerca.

Al observar todas las acciones que pueden generarse entorno a la protección y conservación y restauración de nuestras aguas, proponemos este tour y esta música principalmente para reconectar, educar y reconocer al Agua como el principal componente de vida.

NUESTRO TOUR MARIPOSA

Nuestro tour contempla ir de  Seattle Washington USA a Puebla, México al pasar por 15 locaciones distintas. En cada espacio estaremos ofreciendo un  encuentro-concierto en comunidades que son cercanas a nuestros corazones. Como las mariposas monarcas migrando hacia el sur, estaremos pasando y quedándonos en estos sitios como Seattle, Portland, California Redwoods, Palm Springs, Oakland, San Francisco, Tijuana, Guadalajara, Mexico City, Cholula, and Puebla. En cada uno de estos sitios estaremos ofreciendo un concierto de las canciones nuevas, nuestro arte, narrativas, y espacio de conversaciones colectivas para compartir nuestras perspectivas entorno las acciones sobre el agua. Nos interesa los intercambios directos con nuestras comunidades mientras creamos y compartimos el telar de historias que vamos hilando las narrativas y acciones de nuestros pueblos.

LO QUE SABEMOS. AGUA ES VIDA.

 Ésto es algo que podemos afirmar juntos y juntas. Las canciones de nuestro proyecto Madre Mariposa son un recordatorio potente para permanecer como guardianes compasivos de nuestras palabras, y acciones unos hacia los otros durante estos tiempos de cambios. Les presentamos nuestro trabajo como esfuerzo de acción alineado en estos temas. Nuestra mission es UNIR a la gente de Estados Unidos y México en un llamado hacia la sanación y responsabilidad para nuestro planeta al cuidar activamente de nuestras comunidades. Únete en esta misión como aliado y aliada al proyecto. Necesitamos de tu ayuda para llevarlo a cabo. Cada aportación es bienvenida chica, o grande, todo va sumando. Las Aguas te necesitan. 

Te agradecemos desde ahora por tu entusiasmo al compartir nuestro mensaje y propuesta con amor. Gracias por tu apoyo y solidaridad! 

 Mni Wiconi. Water is Life. Agua es Vida.

En amor y agradecimiento, por todas nuestras relaciones, y especialmente Priya Alahan, Eli Abrams y Luk Will.

Con amor,

Hayley y Paola

Risks and challenges

Going on tour involves intricate task management. We are currently working to book shows at various venues, organize private house concerts, reach out to local communities about our project, source proper equipment for our performances and find lodging. In addition to these factors, while on tour we will also be rehearsing, documenting our process and posting it on social media, managing our tour, and planning daily details of our travels.
As musicians and activists, we are striving for impeccability. We are aware of possible delays due to external causes that we cannot foresee and promise to communicate any changes regarding our tour on all social media pages.
