Queer Fado - Support us recording Fado Bicha’s first album Fado Bicha is a music band and an artivism project. We are soulful musicians and activists by choice. In a conservative and traditionalist environment like Fado, we needed to invent a place where we could create new narratives and explore different expressions and possibilities for our bodies and voices, which did not fit the normative pattern. The stories of LGBTI people (and generally the stories of resistance, oppression, and social critique related to sexual, ethnic, economic minorities) were blocked out from fado, by conservatism, and habit, and we wanted to be represented in what we did, not subliminally but fully. We started Fado Bicha in 2017. We are Tiago Lila (stage name: Lila Fadista) and João Caçador. We have played over 150 concerts, mostly in Portugal, but also in Spain, France, Belgium and Luxembourg. We were actors in an independent film and in a musical created by Teatro Praga and performed at São Luiz. We have delivered lectures at University of Coimbra and University of Porto. We played at the Lisbon, Bragança, Porto, Viseu and Funchal Prides and created a periodic themed event, in which we invite other Lisbon artists and thinkers. We are currently working with electronic musician Moullinex, who is producing our album and we need your support to make that happen. So far we have not wanted to associate ourselves with a record label as we want total control over our creation and the way we present ourselves. Assuming ourselves as independent musicians, averse to market logic and anti-current has its risks. We know why we are here and what footprint we want to leave, the path we want to take. This crowdfunding campaign is designed to help us cover the costs of our first album production, recording and editing, expected by April 2020; directing three music videos for our songs, in collaboration with other artists, creating queer and relevant visual narratives; and the creation of new songs. Very concisely, this is it. To help us create so that we can not only accomplish all this but also establish a platform that will allow us to achieve greater sustainability of our work the visibility of our music and our commitment - with us, with you and with the queer Portuguese culture. The total amount of money this campaign is asking for is distributed as follows: A- Production, recording, editing and promotion of the album to be launched in April 2020 (including authorship rights for some songs, invitations to additional musicians, external mastering, phonographic licensing, etc.) - 11.000 euros B- Three video clips to be directed between November 2019 and March 2020 - 8,000 euros C- Creation of new songs - 6,000 euros As a retribution for those who want and can support us we have some perks to give away. From the autographed album or a Fado Bicha t-shirt with the design of Ana Filipa Olímpio; to some more original proposals for those who can support us more expressively - an assisted and shared rehearsal (maybe an impromptu duet!), a creative make-up session with us and our make-up artist Cris Severo, a home made dinner cooked by ourselves (warning: vegan and delicious) or even a four hands massage (ours!!): there is a little bit of everything! And we really want to get to know you as well and truly share these experiences with you. Besides supporting our work and creative vision, helping us to grow and diversify our reach, we are all part of a community which needs unity to strengthen our openness to each other, sharing and positive communication. The contribution of the people who identify themselves with our work - and, to some extent, with our urgency to do it - is crucial now so that we can achieve all these beautiful goals within the next six months. Have a look at the perks page and contribute if you can. If you would like to support us but do not have financial availability, you can still share this crowdfunding project among your friends helping us to reach as many people as possible. Thank you very very much. Get to know us a little better through some of our videos bellow. See you soon!
