SHAOLIN JAZZ in Ethiopia / IndieGogo


Today, we’re pleased to announce our biggest project to date, a cultural program we’ve developed entitled SHAOLIN JAZZ in Ethiopia! 
SHAOLIN JAZZ in Ethiopia, which will take place from May 2-10, 2016, consists of two culturally expansive tiers:
  • The first being travel to the highly industrious city of Addis Ababa where, for one week, we will meet and interview local Jazz and Hip-Hop artists to learn about the history of those respective scenes in Ethiopia, which will culminate in a SHAOLIN JAZZ L!VE performance (live Jazz and Hip-Hop).
  • The second tier will take place in Washington, DC and will consist of a panel discussion about Jazz and Hip-Hop culture in the US and Ethiopia, followed by a performance of SHAOLIN JAZZ L!VE, in the historic U Street Corridor, featuring both local and guest Ethiopian musicians.

We have been awarded a grant by the DC Commission of the Arts and Humanities to fund part of this initiative, however in order to make the full exchange possible we have to raise $10,000 by the end of March. This is where you and I come in.

In order to make this all happen we need your support.  We have launched an IndieGogo campaign for the month of March to raise $10,000 to help fund this initiative.  For each donation of $15 or more we have a long list of SHAOLIN JAZZ perks and goodies that you can choose from including music, tote bags, baseball tees, vinyl records, show tickets and more.  If you enjoy the arts and are interested in supporting a culturally substantive program Click here to shop around and pledge your support today!
