Invisible Children and La Blogotheque organized a show during CMJ Music Marathon, with Yellow Ostrich, Traffique and High Life. Here is a movie about the event.
In November 2009 Kenny Laubbaucher of Invisible Children reached out to Chryde regarding an idea for a documentary film project set in Uganda. The idea was to facilitate a cultural exchange of sorts, pulling together a few bands and traveling with them to Gulu.
Little over a year later we are on our way to making this film a reality. Together, and with the help of many friends and supporters, earlier this year we managed to raise initial funding via a Kickstarter campaign. Several months later we were awarded as recipients of the Lincoln Fellowship Grant, an incredible honor and additional financial support, getting us even closer to production.
And this October, in an effort to further promote the project and to secure the remaining funds needed, La Blogotheque and Invisible Children teamed up with the CMJ Music Marathon & Film Festival. The resulting showcase, featuring Yellow Ostrich, Peter & Wolf’s Traffique and Doug Shaw’s High Life, was outstanding.
