Texas Music Project met with Bohemian Guitars at the 2015 National Association of Music Merchants in Anaheim and developed a partnership for their recycled instruments at Earth Day Texas in Dallas, April 24,25, 26. TMP’s goal is to educate the general public on how the music makers are involved in the “green” Earth friendly movement.
A collaboration between two brothers, Bohemian Guitars was conceived as an alternative to the overpriced and bland musical instruments available today. The inspiration originated 8,419 miles away from Atlanta, in Adam and Shaun’s hometown of Johannesburg, South Africa. There, Shaun was inspired by the ingenuity and resourcefulness of the musicians in South African townships, who repurposed discarded materials into playable instruments. When Shaun first heard the amazing sounds coming from a guitar made of such simple materials, he felt a connection to the instrument, one that has never left him. A great sounding guitar with the looks to match should not cost a fortune, and beautiful music can be created from instruments made of any material.
By circumventing traditional channels and engaging with customers directly through our website, Bohemian Guitars is able to provide higher quality, fully-customizable guitars at a much more affordable price.
We’ll cover your neck by planting one tree for every guitar we sell. Since 1989, our partner, Trees for the Future has been helping communities around the world plant trees. Through seed distribution, agroforestry training, and country programs, they empower rural groups to restore tree cover to lands. Planting trees protects the environment and helps preserve traditional livelihoods and cultures for generations.
