The heights of Indian Classical Music, in the 1600s were achieved by the enthusiastic patronage of the Maharaj. The Renaissance in Europe was funded by the Medicis. Musicians, Artists and Dancers need an immense amount of time and energy to perfect their crafts and fashion their creations. They also have to eat, sleep, support their families and pay their bills. Generosity from those who support arts, music and culture is essential in helping artists do what they do.
All of this is a fancy way of saying that my girlfriend and I are having a BABY! and will need a lot more money than my current employment can afford. From $5 to $5000, your money goes directly to the artist and the family. To pay bills, buy gas and food, make time for recording song ideas, practicing guitar, sarode, kamale ngoni and singing. You are that Maharaj and I am your proud court musician. You are the Medici and I am your therapeutic
