“Ephemeroptera: Pura Folklorica” Project
In July 2012, “Ephemeroptera” will return to Peru and travel to the Mantaro Valley, located in the Andes mountains, in search of folkloric music festivals.  Our goal is to release some recordings of new and unknown musicians of folkloric music, as well as license and reissue old recordings.  We’re looking for Andean traditions, rare recordings, old timers, street musicians-that sort of thing.  The trip will last a little over a month (which isn’t a tremendous amount of time when you travel around Peru) but we’ll be focusing on this one region high in the mountains.  The journey, and what we see and hear along the way, will be documented, photographed, illustrated, and published in upcoming editions of “Ephemeroptera.”  It’s an ambitious project, we know, but we’ve been doing a lot of research and the project is close to our heart…in our blood, actually.  And we’re not afraid to ask for help.  Which is why we’re having this benefit.  All proceeds from this event will help fund the project.  Thanks for helping out, we really appreciate your support!
