It has been a long while since we last updated you all on this project... Our apologies, but please know that we have been busy editing the Street Muse Kenya documentary. The film is now picture locked and we are presently in the post production stages of color correction and sound mixing/mastering. We plan to send the film out to film festivals in the US and around the World.
The trailer for the film can be viewed here: street muse kenya trailer
Through your generous support we were able to fund the majority of this project. However, we are currently looking to raise a bit more money to cover the post-production costs. To this end, we are offering the Field Recordings EP for download on bandcamp: streetmuse.bandcamp.com
Take a listen, and if you choose to download the EP ~ all funds will go directly to post-production costs.
Also, the final incentives we have to send out are dvds of the completed documentary, which we hope to have ready in the Spring. If for some reason you did not receive any of the other incentives please contact us and we will fix that immediately!
TOUR!!! MARCH AND APRIL 2014!!
Another bit of exciting news is that Gull is currently planning a tour with 2 Kenyan musicians who we met and performed with while in the Ngong Hills just outside of Nairobi... Their names are Mango Boniface Odhiambo and Oduor Gabriel Odhiambo ~ two gifted traditional Luo musicians who play the nyatiti (a lyre-like instrument indigenous to Kenya) and percussion. The tour will take place in March and April of 2014, and we are presently in the midst of the booking process. Please feel free to reach out and let us know if you would like Gull/Mango/Oduor to perform in your town or city ~ or if you have any ideas for a show or tour support. The musicians are looking to perform at colleges, schools, venues, homes and streets around the US.
We are so grateful for your support and patience throughout the many facets of this ongoing project and look forward to sharing the documentary with you soon.
Nate, Len, and Meryl
