"My Music is Yours" is a project that aims to involve people from creation to recording of a digital musical album sung in Portuguese.
"My Music is Yours", aims to record my solo album. As a musician and author, I have participated in several projects such as Banda Jota or The Curimakers , among others, and recorded several CDs over the years, but I have yet to share something, something that is as genuinely mine and also from the ones I love and cherish.
So, I launched the challenge "My Music is Yours" on Facebook , in which I have created songs from texts, ideas or poems that people more or less close are sending me. This is the stage of creation in which I am involved at the moment and which in confinement has allowed me to post simple videos on Youtube, to share the first version of the songs in acoustic mode. These videos are my Acoustic Sessions @ my parents' house.
Now is the time to think about recording the themes for real, and for that, I would also like to have the support of those who believe in my music, my creativity and my determination to make it happen. At this time, the sense of community, mutual help, sharing and the spirit that together we can make good things happen is more important than ever. We all desire music to remain present in us every day.
Of course, this support always has its rewards and we will all win.
Thats why I created this crowdfunding project, so that "My Music can be Yours too"!
About the author
Curi, is a middle-aged musician and author (:P), who has found refuge throughout his life in the arts of words and music... and everything that transports him to a creative world of strong emotions. He has made part of 3 musical projects till this day: "Longa Metragem", with songs in Portuguese language, released in the mid 90s, some of them recorded and a community of local fans. Then Banda Jota was born in the 00s. With this Christian-inspired band, Curi has recorded 4 albums of originals and toured several stages. In the 10's, The Curimakers were were born and the English-language CD Split in Two was recorded. It was a project conceived by Curi, with compositions by him and his friend Tozé Novais, which included the participation of several musicians who toured the radio and television stages and programs. It was until today, Curi's most popular musical project and a huge achievement for a simple country boy.
In 2018 the artist Curi, finally decides to spread his wings to be a full-time entrepreneur, creating Happy Van and separating himself from Banking. It is through this company of sightseeing tours in WV Classic vans that Curi, together with his friend João Simão, reinvent themselves in the arts, creating in mid 2019 a multidisciplinary project integrated in 365 Algarve, named The Algarve - an Educated Journey, which tells the history and stories of the Algarve through guided tours, theater, music and crafts.
Now, and after so much struggle and persistence, we are at this point, that of COVID-19.
It is time to roll up our sleeves again and take on new challenges. I accept.
