Welcome to the Rara Avis Patreon campaign!  Thanks so much for visiting :)

Patreon is a way for my fans to financially support me with small, recurring donations that occur when I create a song or a video.  This gives me the stability and freedom I need to keep creating and less time doing other things to make ends meet! 

When you become by patron, you're supporting my channel directly.  This is SO important to me :) I've spent all my adult life trying to make a living from music, but so far have struggled to find a way to pay the bills and keep creating. 

A Patreon campaign is a way for us to work together to make that happen! The way Patreon works is that you decide to donate a specific amount of cash every time I create a piece of content. You can set a limit per month so that you don't go over budget, and like a kickstarter campaign there are increased rewards as you give more.

Why I Create Music:
I'm a musician who cares deeply about the planet and all life that dwells upon it.  I see music as a sacred offering that can help uplift and inspire people to come together, connect, share unconditional love and nourish each other.  

For me, making music is a living, breathing experience.  A deep ritual prayer offering our love of music to Spirit and to those who enjoy what we create.

So that's where you come in!  I want to create music that stirs your soul and awaken your body... I want to be a soundtrack to your gatherings and your celebrations.

So please take a listen to my offerings, and consider coming on board with me as a patron for my art!

 
My Bio: Global Music Pioneer
Rara Avis (Latin for rare bird), born Alex King-Harris, is a leader in transformational shamanic music experiences. His immersive sonic environments incorporate a multi-instrumental, omni-cultural approach, mixing pre-produced original studio music with live electronic elements. Flute, guitar, didgeridoo, harmonic overtone singing and DJ techniques are layered together to create the backdrop for opening prayers and guided meditations – inspiring ecstatic journeys in venues as intimate as a yoga studio and as sprawling as a festival setting.

Rara influences include African, Middle Eastern and East Indian music as well as ambient, downtempo, house and hip hop. Playing with Desert Dwellers, Shamans Dream and Liquid Bloom laid the foundation for his current solo work on Six Degrees Records.

In addition to his work as an artist, he is also the CEO and co-Founder of YogiTunes.com, a digital streaming and download music service focused on the yoga and wellness communities.

"Your sets touch my heart in ways that are deep and profound… Your vulnerability and deep sharing creates and holds a safe place that inspires up to go deeper into our hearts.”

Being is believing :) You’re supporting me and that’s huge!  Big thanks.  You’ll get my patron-only posts and access to the patron-only feed, which is a great way to connect with this little community and see everything that gets posted + talked about. Your voice is just as important as anyone else's!

Get Up to Get Down Tier

I can feel something building! You're supporting me a little more, and that is amazing. HUGE THANKS. You'll get access to the patron-only feed, as above, where we get to connect, and you'll also be DIRECTLY emailed keepable/playable/readable downloads of any content (PDFs, MP3s, etc). Build your library of Rara Avis (n’ latin Rare Bird) collectibles!

OMG Really?! Tier
$5 or more per creation

 

This is big.  It’s $5 a song (or thing), which let’s face it - in the world of free music - is really, really generous. GIGANTIC THANKS! You'll get all of the above, plus you'll get random surprises in your email. I'll share extra stuff with you every once in a while, including some of my philosophical musings, meditations, yoga flows (video), insights on vibrational medicine, and other groovy things I think you might enjoy. Plus I’m always open to ideas and feedback about what to offer up :) 

Rare Bird Tier
$10 or more per creation

 

Welcome to officially being a Rara Avis! This is a lot to give to a creative-artist, so you’re really showing me some love here. MASSIVE THANKS!  I'll try my best to make it worth your while. You'll get all of the above, random surprises and all, plus access to my patron-only web chats in which I’ll chat/perform live/discuss things with you. I’m also open to making these into some focused shop talk/group lessons on music production, sound healing and live performance. I usually do these chats from my home or from the road, so you get a glimpse of what real life is looking like for me. I love doing these, as they’re intimate and special. I’ll do the webcast even if I haven't made any art, so you may be getting free webcasts where we can just chat and connect a bit, talk life, etc.

For the Yogis Tier
$25 or more per creation

Wow. $25 per thing eh? That’s more than a lot. EPIC THANKS!!! So how do I pack enough value in here? For starters you’ll get all of the above, plus a monthly subscription to my custom built streaming service YogiTunes (I’m CEO of that when I’m not making music). YogiTunes has over 10,000 hand picked songs for yoga, massage, meditation and other healing arts journeys… all package into a beautifully designed mobile app.  

Art in the Mail Tier
$75 or more per creation

Ok, excuse me what? $75 per thing? LUDICROUS THANKS!!! I must be dreaming. So I also moonlight as a graphic designer… and at this tier you’re being so supportive of me that aside from getting all the above AND causing me feeling overwhelmed with joy and love, every few months you can opt-in to receive a unique piece art that I design and print myself. I can sign and/or dedicate the art to anyone or anything, and ship it anywhere!

Explosion of Goodness Tier
$250 or more per creation

We’re vibrating so high at this point that we’re approaching purse, unadulterated stillness. Aside from being incredibly grateful, getting all of the above, and fueling my creative ship with the necessary juice to go beyond ludicrous to PLAID THANKS! (Watch SpaceBalls if you don’t get the reference here), you’ll also get some serious VIP treatment. 


You get free access for two to any of my shows, plus we get to go have dinner anytime I’m performing near you. If I’m not performing near you then I’ll work some magic and make it happen (unless you live in Siberia, and then we’ll need to meet in the tropics)

Beyond Words Tier
$1,000 or more per creation

Ok. So as the tier said, I have no words. I’ll fly to wherever you are, I’ll cook you dinner, tears will be shed. You get all the things, and I can rest in peace.
