Sounds and Colours Argentina Fundraiser Is Almost 50% Funded

By | 04 May, 2016

As you may or may not be aware we are currently raising money for our fourth publication, which will be a book and CD focused on the music and culture of Argentina. Since April we have been raising money for the production of the book via Indiegogo and have now raised close to 50% of the target. With your help hopefully we can reach the target! Here’s a little info about the book:

Sounds and Colours Argentina will be a 200-page book filled with articles, illustrations and photos produced by an extended team of experts, academics, cultural fanatics, artists, musicians and devotees. By focusing on a wide range of topics and using a vast array of points of views we aim to show a true panorama of Argentine culture, looking at the cultural icons of yore as well as the new artists and areas where creativity and integrity are colliding in interesting ways.

You can pre-order a copy of the book, as well as get some great perks, by going to igg.me/at/argentina/x/627815
