As a part of our ongoing effort to promote the many important projects of New Orleans’ artists and advocates, we would like to take a moment to point out a very exciting endeavor that is currently being undertaken by a student at Loyola University. Dimitri Staszewski, a junior in the Music Industry Studies program, is in the process of acquiring funds for a trip to Mongolia in which he will shoot a documentary profiling the state of the region’s nomadic traditions through the lens of music. The project, which is raising money through a Kickstarter campaign, has already received a great deal of support and attention, including a spot on Pitchfork’s curated projects page. The campaign has 19 days left to raise a desired goal of $6,000. So, if you want to support the cause, consider checking out the project on Kickstarter.com and pledging a donation to help this local aspiring filmmaker achieve his goal!
About ChinquapinChinquapin Records is a cooperative of artists and advocates formed late 2010 in New Orleans, LA. Though the name is still young, the community that it represents has been sharing and caring since we first fell in love with each other's music. Chinquapin Records seeks to be an outlet for sharing the music we make and the music we love.
