The completion of the recording of "Baque de Brooklyn" will mark our 10 year anniversary of performing and giving classes in Brooklyn. The CD is already recorded. The money that we're raising is going to help us pay for the costs involved with mixing, mastering, artwork and printing the CD's. If we raise more money than what our goal is, we will use the extra funds to hire a publicist to help us get our CD into the hands of as many radio stations and journalists as possible.
For many years most Americans have associated Brazil with samba and bossa nova, overlooking the numerous regional rhythms and music styles which are tremendously popular throughout Brazil, such as maracatu. We are the 1st established maracatu group in the USA and we hope to fully fund this CD without cutting corners so that we can release a quality product that will last forever and continue to make an impression on people about the vast diversity of music and culture, both in Brazil and the USA!
