JHU Kranti's Debut Music Album

JHU Kranti is Johns Hopkins's one and only South Asian A Cappella group. We've been around for 11 years, and today, we want to share our music with you!

We are JHU Kranti, and we LOVE music!

None of us knew each other before going to college, but we all came together to share in that love of music. We work every week we're on campus, constantly creating new songs, mixes, and medleys, and performing those in various venues simply for the entertainment of our wonderful audiences and even more wonderful fans! When recording our first song, we thought: why stop at one? Thus, our quest to set out and record an entire album began! By contributing to our goal, not only will you help us in achieving this quest, but you'll also give to yourself, and to the rest of the world, a new musical experience that they will love. Trust us, the world will thank you.*

*This thank you from the world is most likely implicit and unsaid. However, if you meet any of our members, be sure to let us know you contributed and you'd get a very explicit and un-unsaid pat on the back.

I'll tell you what we want, what we really really want!

Producing an album is expensive, and the cost stands beyond the kind of funding we currently receive. So we're reaching out to you all!

  • All the money gained from this campaign goes directly to funding our album- recording, mixing, and editing fees galore!
  • Feel free to donate as much as you can. Every penny helps!
  • Just by donating at any perk level, we'll hook you up with the entire album as soon as it's done, along with everything else listed there on the side!
  • $3000+ gives as a great place for us to produce the album we want. If we don't hit $3000, we'll take what we can and put it into the album, and release a smaller album setlist with the money we have!

You're gonna make a change, for once in your life it's gonna feel real good!

We take care of the music side. We sing, we dance (a little, not well, don't expect much), and we have fun performing. However, it's up to you guys to get that music out there. We don't have an advertising team, but we do believe in simply working on and creating good music for all of you to enjoy. We're just asking you guys to help us share that music for everyone else!

  • If you've never heard South Asian music, you'll love it. Google "Bollywood Songs" right now, and immerse yourself in addictive melodies, a world of color and flavor, and downright rocking jams.
  • Once you've listened to this South Asian awesomeness, imagine taking the best parts of the songs you've heard, combined with the best parts of the songs you already know. That's what we do!
  • We work to make a different sound every time, creating tunes that hundreds if not thousands of people listen to, and we're asking for your help to make that number bigger!

It's not (just) about the money, money, money!

Hey- thanks for taking the time to read through all of this. If you don't have the money to pay, we completely understand! We're college students, and we're asking for help. If you could, though, spread the word!

Thanks everyone!

    You're an awesome person.

    10 bucks! That's 0.33% of our goal! 300 people like you and we're set. Tell you what, we'll hook you up with the very first track of our album as soon as it's done, so you don't have to wait!

    You're also an awesome person.

    30 bucks! All right, let's hype this up a little more for you. Not only will you get the first track of our album as it's done, but we'll also throw in a beautifully designed key chain emblazoned with the Kranti logo. We'll also send you our setlist for our album, so you know what exactly to expect!

    So many awesome people!

    All right, it's time to get serious. You'll get everything you would've gotten had you donated 30 dollars, but now we're gonna ship over one of our sexy, stylish Humari Awaaz 2014 tshirts, usually only exclusive to us and our performers at our biggest showcase of the year!

    Big money from a big heart!

    Take everything we're giving the 50 dollar guys. We'll also put your name on the album as a thank you! Not only that, but you get to tell us which song from the setlist you'd like to listen to and provide feedback on, and we'll take your feedback and try to incorporate it to the editing! It's like you're one of our producers.

    We love you now.

    You're getting everything the 100 dollar dude was getting, but you'll also get around 90 seconds of an acappella-fied live recording of us performing a song of your choice! Send it to a loved one, win over the love of your life, just tell us what we need to do, and we got your back, just like you got ours!

    Wow. Thank you.

    You're going to be listed in the album, not in the thank yous, but as an Executive Producer. Put that on your resume, why don't you. We'll send you the demos from ALL of our tracks and you get to put in feedback for everything and we'll work together to make it sound the best we can. You'll get everything that was offered at 250 dollars as well, but we'll amp up your song to 2 minutes! Thank you!
