Album Latin Guitar Connections - Thiago Colombo

T. Colombo, The International Classic Guitar Player is back with a fresh and dynamic new album in Instrumental Guitar! !!We NEED your HELP!!

We did it!

On 5th Sep 2016 we successfully raised £1,805 with 44 supporters in 21 days

About the project:

Latin Guitar Connections is a result, at the same time, a systematic artistic research work and free daydream about Latinity and its implications in different contexts. The Project is, above all, the autobiography of an artist who sees the world through the guitar in South America.
It can be said that the concept of the album is the junction between the famous sentence of Brazilian geographer Milton Santos, "The Centre the world is everywhere, the world is what you see from where you are" and the letter excerpt of the song La Música y La Palabra, Argentine dos cantautores Carlos Aguirre and Jorge Fandermole “no le esquivo la mirada a este mundo y su dolor pero desde la guitarra me parece ver mejor”.
In this project, Thiago Colombo presents a repertoire for solo guitar composed entirely of his own compositions, making references to several typical musical genres of Latin America, as well as references to foreign cultures who developed regional identities over time, adding also ephemeris from the everyday artist. There is no intention however, to reinforce stereotypes of Latin civilization, nor popular genres as more or less pure, vernaculars.
The proposal is to present a matrix of Latin music open to the globalized world and aware of its inherent hybrid condition. Fortunatly the chance to record this album came from the city of Bath, UK, possibly the most Latin of all Bristish cities, whose symbol is precisely the Roman baths as a kind of fisical exemple that cultures are each other much more than usually believed.

Aiming of the Crowdfund:

This Crowdfunding is aiming to raise 8000£ to fund the expenses of the recording of the album and the DVD that is going to be recorded in several spaces around the Southwest of England. By the end we will have an CD, DVD and Vinyl produced and pressed, with the work of the artist.

Sobre o Projecto:

Latin Guitar Connections é resultante, ao mesmo tempo, de um trabalho de pesquisa artística sistematizada e do livre devaneio sobre a latinidade e suas implicações em diferentes contextos. O projeto é, acima de tudo, a autobiografia de um artista que vê o mundo através do violão e a partir da América do Sul. Pode-se dizer que o conceito do álbum se encontra no entroncamento entre a famosa frase do geógrafo brasileiro Milton Santos, “o centro do mundoestá em todo lugar, o mundo é o que se vê de onde se está”, e o trecho da letra da canção La Música y La Palabra, dos cantautores argentinos Carlos Aguirre e Jorge Fandermole: “no le esquivo la mirada a este mundo y su dolor pero desde la guitarra me parece ver mejor”.
Neste projeto, Thiago Colombo apresenta um repertório para violão solo composto inteiramente de composições próprias, fazendo referência a diversos gêneros musicais típicos da América Latina, bem como menções às culturas estrangeiras formadoras das identidades regionais através dos tempos, agregando também efemérides do cotidiano do artista. Não há a intenção de reforçar os esteriótipos de latinidade, nem de tomar gêneros populares como mais ou menos puros, vernáculos. A proposta é apresentar uma música de matriz latina aberta para o mundo globalizado e consciente da sua condição híbrida inerente. Como manda o acaso, calhou de gravá-lo em Bath, Reino Unido, possivelmente a mais latina das cidades britânicas, que tem como símbolo justamente os banhos romanos, como uma espécie de exemplo
físico de que as culturas estão umas nas outras, muito mais do que se crê usualmente.
Este Crowdfunding tem como objectivo colectar 8000£ para suportar e apoiar despesas inerentes a gravacao do album e DVD que ira ser filmado em varios locais pelo SouthWest de Inglaterra. No fim teremos para apresentar CD, DVD e Vinyl que iram ser colocados a venda na Europa e Brazil.

O fundo colectado ira ser aplicado nas seguintes despesas:

- Studio Expences
- Sound Engineers
- Video Enginners
- Mixing and Mastering Engineers
- Pressing CD, DVD and Vinyl
- Publishing expences.
O progresso na producao e gravacao do CD e DVD ira ser diariamente publicado no website do artista e enviado por newsletters para os crowdfunders.
