GREETINGS, My name is Bruno Garcia, better known as "SERGENT GARCIA." I'm a musician and after working for over 20 years with Afro-Caribbean rhythms, I have decided to set up a recording studio ... But not just any kind of studio ... I need a nomadic studio, a place with no borders that will allow me to travel and record music at the same time. When Pierre Dandin, my trombone and Breton sailor asked me to create a recording studio on a sailboat, I thought ... SURE!. Suddenly the answer was obvious. A sailboat with a recording studio in which we can travel, produce, work, and record all these caribbean rythms. ... That’s how the"GUAKAMAYO PROJECT" was born and if I am here today is because we need your help. We are seeking partners and sponsors to help us realizing this project. Also it's not just a simple studio, no, no ... The "GUAKAMAYO" will sail from Valencia (Spain) and will reach the Antilles where we will be sailing for several months. During these months, scales will be done in the different islands of the Antilles and we will look for traditional musicians to take on the boat and record. With these recordings we will make a CD album compiling songs recorded during the trip. We will also produce a documentary film, a TV serie, and a series of educational DVDs intended for schools and music schools. The "GUAKAMAYO" project also has an educational goal. We intend to give lectures, about the Afro-Caribbean cultures and the preservation of the environment, in schools and community centers in the cities of scale. Finally we think that all the rhythms that have traveled from Africa to the Caribbean may one day disappear and before that happens, we want to record and archive them so we can pass them on to future generations. This way, we will be able to keep that richness alive. We are willing to contribute with this natural laboratory that today is the Caribbean. Why fund it? The collect will be used to: Get the “GUAKAMAYO” in good conditions to cross the Atlantic. -revisions of electronic devices ............................................... 1500 euros -revision of riggins ................................................................... 1000 euros -purchase of an dinghy boat.. ..................................................1000 euros -purchase of a life raft .. ............................................. .............1500 euros -purchase of various marine equipment ...................................3000 euros -purchase of an automatic pilot ............................................... 4000 euros -Purchase of a sound card APOLO 16/16 ..............................3000 euros TOTAL................................................................................... 15000 euros In the event that we would exceed the amount allowed, the bonus will be invested in the Guakamayo equipment : -purchase of solar pannels ................................................ 3000 euros -Purchase of a computer mac book pro ..................................3000 euros -Purchase of audio cables …… ……………………….....…1000 euros help Sergent Garcia http://www.kisskissbankbank.com/en/projects/guakamayo-project-music-studio-on-the-sea
