With this project we want that the living musicians from the 70's, have an opportunity to present themselves on a FAIR BASE. Most of them are known only by their records and LPs. Their stories should not disappear. To make a contribution to music history, we want to create an autobiographical book with photographs and a companion CD. We won't forget: Besides the European music history there exists also a West African music history

What is this project all about?

With this project we want that the living musicians from the 70's, have an opportunity to present themselves. Most of them are known only by their records and LPs. Their stories should not disappear.
We also want to make a contribution to music history with this book. We won't forget: Besides the European music history there exists also a West African music history.

What is the project goal and who is the project for?

This project is aimed at music enthusiasts and culture lovers. In order to bring the music and the history of the musicians closer, we want to create an autobiographical book of photographs.
This is a FAIR project. The book will be purchased by production. Each musician gets a pre-financing as well as a fixed percentage of each sold copy.

Why would you support this project?

Today rare records of popular music from the 70s from Benin are highly sought after. However, no information is available about the lives of their players. Few people know that the still living musicians are not able to live from their music today .
We want to tell their story on a fair basis.

How will we use the money if the project is successfully funded? 

With the money, production cost of the book will be financed, in order to provide the Beninese musicians a fair financial exchange for their work.
For the texts, a Beninese journalist will be commissioned.

Who are the people behind the project?

  • Check und Joe, from the Discshop "LP-House" in Porto-Novo (Bénin)
  • Sylvestre Gogan, "Professeur de Musique" from Porto-Novo, Bénin
  • La maison du patrimoine de la culture, Porto-Novo (Bénin)
  • Jasmin Hartmann, free photographer from Freiburg (Germany)
  • Djamal, "Journaliste à la culture" aus Porto-Novo (Bénin)
