The Mission

We are The Freak Fandango Orchestra and we came to save the world!

Ok, so maybe we won't save the world, but we're about to make it a whole lot more interesting with a new record, filled with a lot of great songs that will brighten up your day.

We'll go to the studio in january to record 9 songs for our album. Six brand new Freak Fandango songs, two awesome traditional pieces and one of our oldest songs which will be re-arranged.

Also the booklet will have a lot of great artwork from different artists and we will design brand new T-Shirts.

The Background

We’re a band from Barcelona, Spain. Since 2007 we’ve been performing our energetic live shows, mixing east european folk music, polka, gypsy music from the Balkans and a big dose of punk-rock. We play a lot of shows around Barcelona but also at international venues, like at the New York Gypsy Festival in 2011 for example.

More info under: freakfandango.es

We’ve released two EPs so far (one with 6 songs and the other with 7) and we think the world is ready for a new Freak Fandango album. All our songs have been released under creative commons license (BY-SA) and are free for download, as will be our new songs. We love to set our music free and see what happens, in the hope of reaching as wide an audience as possible. Our last EP has been downloaded over 250,000 times, and our songs have been played all over the world. They have been used in movies, tv-shows, radio-airplays, theater and even in a ballet show. There are currently thousands of youtube videos sampling our music, hundreds of blogs and podcasts featuring our songs and most important of all: we receive a lot of emails from people telling us how much they love our music. For us, that’s what it’s all about.

As with any new band, we have overheads and costs, so we also try to earn some money for playing if it’s possible. This comes through donations from fans, or payment for extra licensing permissions, and also for merchandising such as CDs or T-Shirts. Unfortunately, the band couldn’t exist without this small income. There are always costs, and naturally it's cool for us if we can cover most of them through our income from donations, sales or concert fees, so we can keep doing what we love to do.

The Contribution

For our new album, we still need to cover all the necessary costs and that’s why we are here on Verkami. We offer you to collaborate to produce the new CD, in exchange for some cool stuff from us:

The new CD with great artwork, cool T-Shirts, private concerts and a lot more.

And we promise to make this the best and most exciting Freak Fandango record ever.

So why do we ask for 2500€?

Basically, this is the price that the studio charges. Mastering will cost another 500€, followed by CD printing (with booklets) for another 1000€. So we're looking at costs of at least 4000€, not to mention the extra hidden costs...

So we are asking the wonderful people at Verkami for your financial support, 2500€ in total, which we think is a reasonable and fair amount. The band will come up with the remainder, through our devotion and dedication. We know it’s a goal we can reach, with your help.

When will we get our stuff?

We'll be in the studio in January. In February the songs will be mixed and mastered. In March the CDs will be pressed. So about end of March, beginning of April they will be ready for shipping! Hip Hip Hurray!!

So what are you waiting for??? Come and join our project, and get yourself a physical copy of our new album or a cool shirt in the process. Help us to save the world! Or at least make it a bit more joyful with some brand new Freak Fandango songs!

Peace and love, Jürgen, David, Xavi, Noe, Vitto, Armin, Jordi and Alfonso

    Si haceis música libre me imagino que usareis Linux ¿no? entonces el estudio os refereis al harware más que al software ¿no?

    Si usais software cerrado para hacer musica libre no conteis con mi apoyo he dicho
