In the first three months of 2018, two trips to Asia by our artists were the focus of our work. The Bulgarian Voices Angelite played sold-out concerts in Japan 20 years after they were there for the first time. In March, Hazmat Modine travelled to India for the first time ever. Both artists achieved outstanding reactions, so that they will probably return to Japan and India in 2019. The Polish/Ukrainian DAGADANA celebrated their premiere. Their first tour brought them a lot of approval, so that they have now been invited to various festivals in summer 2018. This spring, the focus will be on New York for two reasons. The photo book "New York Past & Present" and the New York band HAZMAT MODINE with their new CD "Box of Breath" will be released in spring. Another common point is that JARO has initiated a crowdfunding campaign for both products. The photo book about New York has already been successfully financed, HAZMAT MODINE is currently starting its campaign at STARTNEXT. The New York band will tour Europe starting May 25th and present the new album (completely) at their shows. The WARSAW VILLAGE BAND will play the official opening of the JAZZAHEAD fair in Bremen's Stadttheater at the beginning of April.
