And suddenly fifteen years passed in Dazkarieh’s life! Fifteen years where we worked hard to bring our music to all of you. Therefore, in a celebration mood, we decided to produce our 7th album with your help, raising money to be able to materialize one more creative adventure.

In fifteen years we released 6 albums. The first two, “Dazkarieh I” and “Dazkarieh II”, were a kind of music laboratory in which we have mixed many world influences with ours, trying to find our own identity. In 2006 we published “Incognita Alquimia” and finally feel that, when we turn to the portuguese tradicional music, we began to find our musical path. Followed “Hemisférios”, “Ruído do Silêncio” and at last “Eterno Retorno”, released in 2012.

During all this time we run length and breadth of Portugal and we traveled a lot around the World. Besides our country we’ve made great tours in Germany, which welcomes us almost every year. We also played at festivals and venues in Mexico, Canada, Malaysia, Spain, Estonia, Poland, Austria, Switzerland, Belgium, Lithuania, Czech Republic and Cape Verde.

We always released our albums with a lot of willpower and a lot of investment, not only financial as emotional, and with much support from our friends and family. We have tried, over the years, to give as much as we can to our fans. We make music with all our heart and invest a lot in the sound of our records, the artwork, the videos, merchandising, etc.. We do everything we can so our Art comes to you with the highest quality possible.

After the composing process, the most important part in this story of making an album is the recording process. We must confess: we always loved this part and we did it with great dedication. Our recording process has been evolving, always recording in our own studio and every year acquiring more gear to meet the ambitions of a better new sound. In 2012 we recorded the "Eterno Retorno" in Praça das Flores Studio and we were very happy with the result.

For those unaware, many albuns are recorded instrument by instrument, and layer by layer will the songs gets their final shape. But now we want to make it a different way: we want to record all together in studio, live and with audience like it was a concert. We always felt that in concert lies much of our strength and we want to implement all this energy and complicity for this new album.

As it's known to all, it takes money and currently crowdfunding is a solution that can allow us to record the album in one of the best studios in Europe: the Atlantic Blue Studios in Lisbon - Portugal. We also want to make a nice video of the whole event and the recording process and to produce the discs with a very cool design.

For this we will have several rewards ranging from the digital download to the physical CD, merchandising, exclusive entry to the album presentation concert and dinner with the band, watch the disc's recording in studio and be immortalized in the video we'll made that day. If you are an amazing fan you can also participate in disc or have a private concert! Each of you will choose what amount you will invest in us. You will have a central and decisive role in our album and with your help we'll get embark on another recording adventure.


And because we want you to know exactly where your money goes, here's the album's budget:

Studio fees: 1300€

Copyrigth fees: 200€

Video fees: 1500€

Photos and make up: 500€

Artwork design: 700€

CD factory fees: 1300€

Exclusive T-shirts: 300€

Diverse expenses (reward shipping costs, etc.): 300€

Administrative expenses (PPL/ Paypal/ Multibanco/ Credit Card): 400€

TOTAL: 6500€


Funding round: 21 March to 15 June.

Execution phase: from 15 June to 1 September.


The album will be recorded in the second half of June and all other materials produced until September 1st, the date on which delivery of rewards will be taken (note that some rewards happen soon while recording the disc itself). 

The purpose of this crowdfunding is to make the whole process of making an album more transparent and close  to who wants to acquire it. Instead of all the investment done in front by Dazkarieh and recover it by selling the discs (as already done several times in the past), the investment is done by you when acquire the disk and be aware of all the steps and progress while this is being done.

All the value we can get beyond the € 6,500 will be used to cover the costs of promotion and touring. We expect much beyond this value in order to play more near you....


We count on your support!

* All supporters will be forever immortalized with their name in the credits of the disc.

* If you do not want to spoil the beautiful graphic work of the CD with our signatures, do not hesitate to let us know!

* To all rewards requiring shipping, the costs are included to Portugal (International supporters please contact the band: contact@dazkarieh.com)
