About

Welcome to your station! Urbano Street is a not-for-profit and audio-visual content station documenting independent and alternative artists on the streets. Our mission is to support, document, and promote independent creators and their art. Urbano Street was created to address the lack of appreciation of underground music in New York City.

Our first program, U Capture, is a series of live music videos shot in the streets of New York. Uncut and dirty yet professional, the shooting highlights the city’s environment in its entirety. It provides independent bands, such as Bad Buka, with a professional and high-quality recording of their live performance to pitch their music for new opportunities. For example, the sound recording of the capture of “Leekel” by Ensamble Calavera was featured in the international CD compilation “#Yosoyska”.

Impact:
Self-expression gives humans the opportunity to communicate ideas and feelings about life, the world, culture, experiences, and more. Music performers communicate emotions to listeners through their performances, creating a connection that can save lives.

Even though most artists prioritize expression over cash, they do not earn a living from music. Alternative bands, such as rock, jazz, and world music, usually have a lot more members than commercial artists. Sharing profits among a lot of band members make earnings even more meager. Don’t you think they should be properly compensated for their work?

Your pledge to Urbano Street will go towards the continuation of the high-quality documentation of the DIY music scene.

For those who pick the tiers that come with the “welcome package”, you will receive a mix of Urbano Street’s merch! It could include t-shirts, tote bags, pins, picks, stickers, and more, depending on the tier and length of your subscription.

Would you like to attend or participate in the production of a capture? By subscribing to any tier, you can be one of the 10 guests on the list per capture.
