We are looking for musicians able to create a street band to play Swing Music on the streets of these Clandestines. This project is a special art and culture project based on promoting the voluntary activism during these „clandestines“ or Swing/Lindy Hop performances/dancing. The volunteers will work play on the streets on different „Clandestines“ organised by different local Lindy Hop groups as a swing band while locals will dance Lindy Hop. They will help by playing live music while some giving visibility to citizens’ initiative and the European Solidarity Corps. The selected localities are those where there is currently a school or association of Lindy Hop and the volunteers will show their performances most probably in Denia, Villena, Elche, Altea, Alcoi, Alicante, Murcia and Sant Vicent del Raspeig. They will end up playing on a party to fund raise for environmental projects.
First days will be used to practise and group dynamics, and therefore the group will stay at a remote house to be able to create a repertory. Following days they will be travelling to these locations and will stay separately at the houses of locals.
Volunteers are required to bring lower sheets plus summer sleeping bags.
All around Alicante province
