Crowdfunding 'MANA' - our first studio handpan album

UPDATE

Since Indiegogo doesn't allow us to do a handpan lottery, we had to move the campaign to our own site. If you purchased anything on our INDIEGOGO crowdfunding campaign - you will be refunded within the next days. Of course we highly hope that you will make your contribution again here on our site. We offer the same perks - BUT - to give you a little extra incentive and as a way to apologize, we will give you a download of 'Live in Berlin' (Yatao, 2022) with any perk you purchase on this page!

Thank you guys so much for your support!!

 We also decided to extend the campaign until Saturday, October 22nd, 23:59 Berlin time, due to the current situation. You can buy Lottery Tickets up until this date. After that, you can still buy our music of course!

Short Summary 

After so many years, we finally managed to record our music in the best possible way. We went to Ayasa studios - a studio specifically built for excellent handpan sound - took our super talented friends Matthias and Gerdus with us, locked ourselves in for days and just let the magic happen. 

What came out of this is a reflection on all those past years, playing music from the heart together - as 'Yatao'. At the same time, it also feels like a big leap forward. Into new realms of music that only existed in our minds before. Now it is there to touch your hearts, to move your souls and your feet. 

To bring this music out into this world, with the power and love it truly deserves, we need your help.

The Impact 

We have played many years together, played so many concerts, recorded so many videos and so many jams. But it always felt like our music is not displayed in the best, most professional way. Having gone to a high quality studio, along with super talented musicians and a dope sound engineer, playing our favourite handpans in the world - it feels like we have built an enormous milestone in our musical career. 
We have grown from self learned musicians, playing barefoot on the streets of Berlin to established musicians, achieving quality sounds and still keeping our young spirit and love for our heartfelt, soul-inspired music. 

It is also the first time we have gotten any kind of major support which didn't come from our fans. 
This time we were granted a funding from the government to realise this idea. It was a big big help to make the first steps into the recording process. Through your support though, we will be able to also earn money ourselves and not just pay the bills. You will support us to continue dreaming and making music.

FAQ

Why another crowdfunding campaign?

Unfortunately, we got a message from Indiegogo, that we are not allowed to host a handpan lottery on their platform. They asked us to delete the perk and refund everyone who purchased a lottery ticket.
Since we had a fixed goal on Indiegogo (reach your goal or don't get anything) - we won't be able to fulfill the 15.000€ goal without the ticket. So we decided to move the whole campaign here. Refund EVERYONE on Indiegogo and hope you will find this site and support us here as well!

What happens to my perk that I purchased on Indiegogo?

You will be refunded your money from Indiegogo and we hope you will buy the same perk here! :)

When will the lottery for the Ayasa handpans take place? 

The drawing of the lottery will take place as an online stream few days after the end of the campaign. Everyone who takes part in the lottery will get an email with notification.

Can I buy more than one ticket for the lottery? 

You can buy as many as you want - of course raising your chances to win with every ticket you purchase!
