What is Qisvara?
Qisvara is a song. It’s also an art project, as well as a 5-year story in the making. But labeling Qisvara as any one thing by itself wouldn’t be an accurate depiction of its true spirit… because Qisvara is you. It’s me. It’s all of us. Qisvara celebrates the things that we all have in common, as well as our differences. But what Qisvara really is at its core, is a simple reminder that the age-old narrative that many of us have become so accustomed to – that we are powerless … is truly a myth.
The idea behind Qisvara, is to feature thousands, perhaps even tens of thousands of people, from all walks of life, and from all over the globe, singing together in solidarity on one song. This sends out a powerful message to the world, to our leaders, and to anyone who would argue that we are not stronger together than we are separately. This is the kind of symbolism that we need now, more than ever, in a world that is perpetually torn apart by those who would keep us divided in order to exert their power over us.
Qisvara is born of an optimistic vision of the future, in which we shed our antiquated prejudices, and stand united, so that we can address our world’s impending ethical, societal and ecological difficulties, together. The time is NOW for a dramatic global shift in not just our thinking, but also, our acceptance of those who are different than us.
What are you trying to accomplish?
Our primary goal is to demonstrate to the world, the intrinsic beauty that our species is capable of when we put our differences aside, in lieu a greater cause. Our hope is that by accomplishing this tremendous musical feat, that we inspire millions of others to take action; in their personal lives, their communities, and perhaps, beyond…
Qisvara is in its 3rd and final year. Our objective in 2018 is to record as many new voices as possible in order to create the biggest collective “world choir” on any one song ever recorded. In order to do this though, we need to change our approach from individual, one-person-at-a-time recordings (which is how we started), to larger group recordings. Group recordings are the only way we can make the best use of our time, and reach our ambitious (but achievable!) goals. That being said, we’re still accepting individual recordings (for the time being), because every voice still counts!
(We’ve also been shooting extensive video footage of Qisvara's 3 year creation process for a full length documentary at the end of the project)
How you can get involved.
It probably doesn’t surprise you, that a project of this magnitude comes at a cost. For the last two years, we’ve funded Qisvara entirely on our own (willingly, of course), but we’d like to ask for your support in our third and final year, in order for us to take things to the next level.
For a minimum of $1 a month, you can subscribe here on Patreon.com, and help support an epic project, along with a talented & exceptional team of individuals.
For those of you *incredible* folks who’ve gone the extra mile to support Qisvara financially, we are giving you exclusive access to the members-only area of our website (updated regularly), which will provide you with a behind-the-scenes look into our lives, the project, and a bunch of never-before-seen content (videos, blogs, photos & more). We've even included a few extra physical items like dog tags, T-shirts posters, and personalized monthly video updates made specifically for YOU!
Your subscription will go towards completing the project in 2018!
Thank you for your support from the bottom of our hearts!!
