Feeling lost and don't know what all of this is about?

 Thank You Souls..We Made It!

Salam to all the beautiful souls out there,

We are 47SOUL, a Dabke, Chobi, Electro-Mijwiz group formed back in May 2013 . We are preparing to record our first debut record titled “ShamStep", in London.  This will be our first opportunity to go into the studio and capture our style of Arabic festive music...we’ve been waiting for two years for this chance!

We are four songwriters and producers from Palestine, Jordan and the Palestinian Diaspora.  We dream for this recording to be the sound that carries our struggles, celebrations, and music to the rest of the world.  

With your support we will be able to accomplish our Main Goal that will allow the recording to come to life, and our Two Stretch Goals that will help it to spread out to the people.

Thanks to our friends at Zoomal, its easier than ever to support this recording, just click “Fund This Project” and follow the instructions.

AND! We have some gifts we can offer you in return, so when you contribute, please choose from our Rewards below. 

Check it!




The ShamStep Plan is..



Main Goal of $18k:  "Bring The ShamStep To Life" 

The "Main Goal" in Zoomaal language means all or nothing, we either make it or we don’t!..We are up for the challenge so we have set this goal to cover the basic costs of making a proper record.  This includes:

 Recording |  Engineering | Mastering | Design | Manufacturing of CD's, Vinyl and Rewards  


First Stretch Goal of $24k :  "Watch The ShamStep Grow"

At this point we thought to ourselves; we are a band that spent two years trying to challenge borders by writing music over Skype and rehearsing every chance we had. We fought through this just to be in the same city until finally, by the end of 2014, we managed to base ourselves in the U.K. to write new material. Something fresh was born, we called it Shamstep, and we are more than ready to Share It With The Whole World.

Here is how the first stretch goal is going to help us share "Shamstep":

We will produce the First Official 47SOUL Video Clip, with deeply talented music video directors, helping us to bring the 47SOUL experience into homes worldwide.

Check Us Out On BBC When You Are Done Reading..or Hopefully Donating :) !

* Please feel free to request a more detailed cost breakdown by contacting us!

 

Take a look at Reward #9, you will be thanked on our first official video clip, and put on our Mijwiz Hero Song!


Final Goal ($30k) : Spread The ShamStep!

Our "final goal" is dedicated to a Proper "ShamStep" Record Launch Concert, something that we hope audiences will remember for the ages.  We will also capture the concert in video to ensure that all of our fans everywhere can experience it! 

Building on the Launch Concert, we plan to spread the Shamstep word globally through Guerrilla Marketing Efforts online and offline, using our dedicated independent team and supporters like you!

For the last two years we've completed two successful U.K summer tours and various shows in the Arab World, all without a recording! 

This official launch will give us the material to take stages by storm around the world, and bring "Shamstep" to our summer performances at festivals like Glastonbury Festival and WOMAD Festival!



Perks & Rewards:

 Here are a few Examples of what you can get! 

*actual product may differ from images shown


We are not just asking you to contribute to this campaign.  We want you to own this music with us!  We want “Shamstep” to be something that gives you pride to blast full volume out of your speakers and car stereos.

Your Support means more Dabke for the world and less culture-erasing!

Your Support means that the music is bigger than borders.

Your Support means that music is made to be shared

Your Support is as important as the opportunities awaiting us!
