+Aziz is creating music with Kuwaisiana
1

patron

I'm a Kuwaiti musician working with an incredible band in New Orleans.  KUWAISIANA is a 7-piece group producing a danceable big band sound with a world music influence; we debuted our album Chapter 1 with Universal Music Middle East (out of Dubai). With your help, we will shape our second chapter & grow to becoming a full-fledged, sustainable touring act.

4 Reasons to Give :

  • Let's tackle widespread misunderstandings of Arab, Persian, Desi and MENA cultures (i.e. foster cross-cultural understanding).
  • Amplify 3rd culture music! Let’s build cultural bridges by promoting the multi-dimensionality of Arab identity to the world. My identity is comprised of being a native Middle Eastern artist with American roots so I’m highly collaborative and constantly seek to work with other communities and artists.
  • Help Kuwaisiana cover expenses until we can cover them ourselves! Your support will help us cover production costs, practice space rental, etc. In return, you'll get thoughtful rewards, my eternal gratitude & a highly personalized experience of what goes on behind the scenes.
  • Pre-Order our First Vinyl Run & enjoy the unique merchandising that comes along with it.
My Patreon dollars go towards supporting my bandmates & the production engine of Kuwaisiana. If you believe in my voice & my ability to foster cross-cultural understanding, please support me on Patreon!

Goals

Spending more time in studio: booking studio time, paying musicians, each song costs an estimate of $300 to track and mix. Add an additional $125 for mastering. $850 a month would allow me to record 2 songs monthly.
