In June, Ashfield's Bill Perlman
Reunited 'The Freedom Singers'
This Civil Rights era group toured the Southern United States in protest against segregation. Reunited after many years, they performed a sold-out show at The Ashfield Town Hall.
They recorded the show, and brought the project to Ratite Studios for Mixing and Mastering. The performance and the recording sounds great, and I can't wait for this to come out!
The Kim Loo Sisters Indiegogo Campaign
Here at Birdwaves Media, we've been working for several years on a very exciting project: The Kim Loo Sisters: a documentary.
Daughters of a Chinese 'paper son' and a Polish dressmaker, the Kimmies are four remarkable women. The first Chinese American act to star in Broadway musical revues, Alice, Maggie, Jenée and Bubbles cut their theatrical teeth in kiddie revues in their hometown of Minneapolis during the Jazz Age, performed on the national vaudeville circuit during the Great Depression, and rose to stardom on Broadway and Hollywood screens as a popular jazz vocal quartet during the Second World War.
We are looking to raise money for licensing all the music in the film. For more info on how you can help, please go here:
