WHO WE ARE

The Yurgaki project first began in 2005, and was founded by the Colombian musician Nicolas Cristancho. With the support of the NGO "Gestarte", Yurgaki’s first album OJO X DIENTE was produced, which was deeply-rooted in the popular salsa tradition.

In 2009 Nicolas relocated to Barcelona, and in collaboration with Felipe Varela and Fidel Minda, he reinvented the project as the Yurgaki Trio. The intention of this project was to maintain the use of folkloric themes and energetic salsa rhythms, but to expand on these key elements through the use of experimental improvisation, and explore the affect of groove and modern jazz influences– presenting a distinct sound that was to represent the musical environment that the trio was surrounded by.

With this in mind, the trio started to perform in various venues around Barcelona and found an audience who was open to their ideas, and brought with them a curiosity about the trio’s experimental sound and dance-like feel.

In 2011, the Yurgaki Trio competed in the Jazz Festival of Barcelona, coming first place and winning the opportunity to record an album. The resulting 8-track album (sample below) reflects the creative process that the trio has undergone since the project’s inception.

WHY WE NEED THE FUNDING

As the prize only covered the costs for the recording of the album, the trio has been raising the rest of the funds through live performances and by making their own contributions. At this stage the tracks are recorded and mixed, but the aim now is to find the funds to distribute and promote the album independently through the Verkami platform, allowing the trio to interact directly with their public.

The funds collected will contribute to the mastering of the album, the cover art, the duplication of the CDs, printing of band T-shirts and distribution of all this material amongst their fans.

GET INVOLVED!

The trio has only 40 days to reach this goal, so if you have an interest in this project, get involved! Support us! And help us spread the word to all your friends around the globe.

We will be holding promotional events during the 40 days of the campaign in Barcelona. For updates of when and where, check out our campaign blog.

A special thanks to you all,

Yurgaki
