Soon – Crowdfunding for

Fotobook New York

Why does JARO Crowdfunding?

The times and methods of cultural consumption have changed so rapidly in recent years that many things can no longer be realized. Appetizer culture became common in the times of Twitter & Facebook, as well as mini-contributions in radio and TV. We still try to produce projects with content and we attach great importance to a good presentation. 

In addition, there are projects that are important to us, but which involve a great deal of effort. These projects are financed only with very good sales. That’s why we depend on your support to publish them in their entire design and scope. A first crowdfunding project is the photo book NEW YORK “Past & Present”, 160 pages, 1 music CD, about 160 photos and many scanned original documents.
More than 2 years of work have gone into this book, starting with the learning of the Kurrentschrift to a final journey to New York. In order to keep the book price affordable, we need the support of the crowd.

Here you will find a link to the Startnext’s crowdfunding page, if it is up and running.

Jaro Video of the month

DAgADAnA

New CD out now – Meridian 68

At the heart of the new album are folk songs from Poland and Ukraine. DAGADANA found their inspiration in many sources: amongst their families and friends, at ethnic music workshops, as well as on their friends’ and families’ bookshelves.

The Eastern influence is the result of an encounter with extraordinary musicians – Hassibagen from Mongolia and Aiys Song from China – during DAGADANA’s visit to Beijing. As Dana Vynnytska says, “We first got to China while Ukraine and Poland were preparing for UEFA 2012. We spent a week there, and when it was time to go back home, I felt the same overwhelming sadness as if I were leaving Ukraine. It was a total surprise because after all it’s such a remote culture, unknown to us, and yet it draws you in, it’s intriguing and new”. Everyone in the band was deeply impressed by the first meeting with the musicians over there. “Even though we didn’t know each others’ languages,” Dana remembers, “we communicated easily through music.”

 

Dagmara stresses, “It was a mad vision creating this record. I’m thrilled that we managed to real- ise another musical dream. Now the time’s come to meet our audience, and go on a sound journey together.”

We wish you a merry Christmas

2017 was an event and succesfull  year for us, and we were able to celebrate anniversaries with two artists.   30 years THE BULGARIAN VOICES ANGELITE and 70th birthday of JASPER VAN't HOF.   We have also released high-quality albums that are more than just music. The accompanying books give an insight into the creativity of the artists, evoke memories. We also want to continue such projects in 2018 and look forward to our first release of the new year DAGADANA. We have been following this Polish, Ukrainian ensemble for five years and now we have decided to release their fourth CD. Here, too, we attach great importance to a high-quality booklet. DagaDana pursue a folkloric tradition on one side, but on the other hand embody a young, interested and modern music generation.   Furthermore, the tension is already big on the new studio album of HAZMAT MODINE "Box of Breath". as well as the new CD with Huun Huur Tu "Children of the Otter.   In 2018 the second book project after Lisboa "Past & Present" with New York "Past & Present" will be released, a journey through time from 1928 to today!   We have many ideas and hope to be able to implement them all. We will set up a crowdfunding page at JAROs website to make this possible. In times when there is the focus always on economical values, culture and education are unfortunately too short!   Finally, the short note that we are particularly pleased to be able to host the tour for Pussy Riot from Russia. It is now more than important that the fingers are put on the wounds, the political resistance can not be suppressed (We have just heard that activist Masha Aljekhina was once again arrested today because of her protest [...]
