The project

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.

Sergent Garcia

We are a group of musicians and sailors and we love music and sailing. We have decided to buy a sailboat to build a recording studio in it and cross the Atlantic Ocean with the idea of following the traces left in modern music by the drums of African slaves and mixed cultures of the Caribbean.
