Fans celebrate donations as we progressed toward our fundraising goal at our show at Haydee’s Restaurant on January 5.

First off, we want to thank all of you who so graciously supported us and contributed to our campaign. We could not have done it without you!

Secondly, we want to let you all know that this financial support came just in time for us to head into the studio. In fact, the weekend after we ended our campaign, Elena & Los Fulanos began recording with the talented Charlie Pilzer of Airshow Mastering in Takoma Park.

We could not be more excited to work on this project and are ever grateful to your faith in us to do it. With your support, we will work hard to create a new and unique bilingual folk-rock album.

¡LO LOGRAMOS!

Gracias a un gran esfuerzo y a la contribución de muchos de ustedes, Elena & Los Fulanos recaudó $8,651 — 25% mas de nuestra meta original! ¡INCREIBLE!

Primero, queremos agradecer a todos ustedes que generosamente contribuyeron a nuestra campaña. ¡No lo podríamos haber hecho sin ustedes!

Segundo, queremos informales que éste apoyo financiero viene al mejor momento ya que nos llego a momentos de entrar a grabar en un estudio profesional: El fin de semana después de terminar nuestra campaña, Elena & Los Fulanos comenzó a grabar con el talentoso Charlie Pilzer de Airshow Mastering en Takoma Park, Maryland.

Washington Folk Festival!

On June 2, Elena & Los Fulanos played at the 33rd annual Washington Folk Festival in Glen Echo Park, Maryland. We were recommended by Eric Picard, a Washington Folk Festival organizer who met Elena after he heard her story on WAMU.

It was a great and hot day, but plenty of folks came out to the festival to enjoy good music and spend time outside. We also had the opportunity to welcome our new bassist, Dan Schwartz!
