The project

Samasa_music_logo-1464776149

 

Samasa music is proud to present Meskach!

 

 

Meskach trio, a journey beyond borders, an exploration of European cultures, between Ireland, Bulgaria, Asturias, Holland, Turkey.... close your eyes and open your ears ! Sometimes acoustic and intimate, sometimes experimental with amps and effects, developing a unique identity! 

Stella Rodrigues (Lazik, Ebony bridge, Za ucha) on fiddle and main vocal, Joachim Mouflin (Txutxukan, Gosseyn) on bouzouki and electric guitar, and Yves-Marie Berthou (Gypsy burek, Kazut de tyr) on percussion.

 

Having been able to record over more than nine months in their own professional studio, the trio had the opportunity to explore the songs in their arrangements, choice of instruments, recording techniques, slowly finetuning all tracks until completion.

True to their live sound, the repertoire is partly composed of instrumental traditionals, songs and some of their own  compositions.

These tracks were recorded with as much love and care as what is on the disc, but didn't make it there...you have to make tough choices sometimes!

Nether the less, you can download them, they are pretty good! More electric maybe...

Why fund it?

Releasing an album is expensive. To get an idea, let's see some numbers:

 

The making of:

-recording (6 days):          900e

-mixing:                               900e

-mastering:                          500e

 

Duplication:

-pressing:                           1200e

-copyright:                          500e

-graphic design:               500e

 

Other:

-promotional material:      600e

 

 

 

Total:                                       5099 euros

 

 

As we've already recorded, mixed and mastered the album, this crowdfunding will help us take care of the duplication costs.

If there is more, we'll use the money to get some promotional material for a great tour in 2017! And eventually make a video clip...
