About the project
Minor Sing is almost a decade of Gipsy Swing, broadcasted with joy trough the country and its festivals (Jazz A Vienne, A Vaulx Jazz, Lyon Gypsy Festival,...), but also in many European countries (Belgium, Germany, Netherlands, Czech Republic, Switzerland, ...), in a growing friendship over time.
We also like to work for long phases together in studio, and ... here we have precisly one developing, for our third album !
Two years ago, you were 150 to attend to our crowfunding campaign, on that very plateform, to act as producer of our 2nd album, "Crazy Rythm". It was a real succes ! We are extremly proud of this opus, that is today almost out of stock.
It is because it couldn't have existed without you, that we request your precious help again.
You are more and more to follow us, and tit go straight to our heart !
By the way, let us remind you that we are totally self-funded, independant (and free !), for the reason that we work without any label. This way, we couldn't provide a whole and quality job without certain ressources, like financial ressources.
So many steps are hidden behind an album ; we decribe it for you below. For each of it, your contribution is more than usefull ; essential.
We look forward to it and mainly share the result with you on stage to show you all of our love and our eternal grattitude !
It's your turn to swing !
