What: This proposal for an International Music Exchange with Darlene Solomon-Rogers, Talilo Marfil and Wren deVous. We will host a contest for Jamaican artists to win a free music video. We will create a large network of MCs, beat makers, musicians and artists of all genres. With a focus on hip hop, we will establish locations and contacts for future workshops and educational opportunities that would benefit the Hip Hop Congress in establishing a new chapter in Jamaica.
The top 5 choices will have their songs played on the radio in Portland Oregon. The number one winner will receive a basic music video and the option to travel to Portland with support for bookings. At this time a contract will be written out regarding shows traded and exchanges made. Artists must have an established following and a pro EPK ready for promotion and for bookings purposes. If the winner can fund a trip to Portland, Oregon - RLM will supply: Bookings, social media support, tour management, logistics coordination, international document information, and travel information.
When: Winners will be chosen by April 2 and the video shoot will be conducted by Wren, Talilo and Robert between April 3 – April 6, 2016.
Where: Montego Bay and Kingston, Jamaica – mostly targeting local venues and the Universities with fliers which will establish future contacts for hip hop workshops while also scouting for local talent.
Cost: $1000 – includes round trip airfare, all travel expenses, along with food and lodging.
How (Getting the word out - Promotion): Social Media: With an online presence, in particular, a Facebook event, promotion will spread through our established network along with sponsored ads in Jamaica. We currently have a graphic designer working on the media. Street Team: Distribution on 11/17 posters in all major cities. This will be accomplished through personal connections already in place in those areas. Networking: Connecting with local artists, producers and supporters will help spread the word. Butterfly, Talilo and Wren will also be performing 2-3 shows during the week in order to establish meaningful comradery with local artists.
