About Joel Rodrigues

Hi, I'm Joel from Portugal via Goa, India. I'm an Entrepreneur and Music enthusiast with an interest in Cultural Anthropology, Sociology, & Decolonization.

While pursuing these varied things, in particular Jazz and Blues studies with my guitar, I've been working on WeImprovise! (weimprovise.com).

With WeImprovise! I set out to build a different kind of promotion & discovery platform — supportive, expansive, & inclusive, for music, musicians (students, performers, educators, & researchers), and the wide-ranging industry that supports music worldwide.

The focus is Jazz, Blues, & Roots-Folk-World music — incidentally the music that feeds pop & rock creativity — along with the inclusion of cultural & sociological aspects without which the music cannot truly be engaged with.

From an industry perspective, the WeImprovise! wishes to contribute to expanding and increasing the exposure, audience, and opportunity for musicians all over the world. This in turn of course means good things for everyone else that works with music.

The project is a labor of love, self-funded, and many, many hours of work have gone into it. What you see online now is the beginning, a proof of concept to demonstrate possibilities and inspire ideas. The website is live, even with its many bugs and quirks, and work continues on development and content.

Your support through Patreon will help build, develop, & grow WeImprovise!.

Please check it out and get in touch with any comments,thoughts, to find out more, and/or to talk about how you and/or your company, organization, or institution can support this project.

Note: The suggested amount defaults to US$5 and you can change that to anything you wish. To make a one time donation, enter the amount you wish to contribute, join now and can cancel after the first month.
