Laura Camacho of Athens Tango Project Working on Score to Eat White Dirt Documentary - You Can Help Contribute to Film Score Costs by Funding the Film

Currently, Laura Camacho is hard at work on the score to the documentary, Eat White Dirt. The film has a Kickstarter campaign in which you can receive the soundtrack to the film if you contribute $15! Any amount helps, though. Thanks to everyone for the support so far. We can’t wait to share our music with you!

Eat White Dirt - Help Support Adam’s Documentary

 
Back in May of 2013 we were searching for a photographer for our press photos. We received a referenced to Adam Forrester. Upon looking at his portfolio we were impressed by his landscape photography, as well as a documentary called Eat White Dirt that he was shooting at the time. He took some wonderful photos of the band with several being used to this day as our press photos. Adam is currently in post-production on that documentary that inspired us to choose him for the photo shoot. We’d really encourage people to help him out. You can contribute to his project here:

Athens Tango Project

Athens Tango Project is a local group committed to bringing Argentine tango music to the northern hemisphere. Laura Camacho, a veteran of the tango music scene of Buenos Aires, came to Athens, Georgia to study upright bass and quickly found there to be a lack of tango music in the Classic City. She assembled a band consisting of assorted percussion, piano, violin, saxophone and of course, her native bass. The result is the Athens Tango Project, a delightfully different trip to another part of the world. 

The group plays eclectic mix of music from Astor Piazzolla, Carlos Gardel, and even a few jazz standards.
