:!: (THE BUSKING PROJECT) With a tag line of 3 writers, 5 continents, and 1 mission, the Busking Project has released a paperback book detailing some of it's exploits in the wide world of street performing.
As Busker Central continues it's book review series, we find Nick Broad, Chris Smith, and Belle Crawford. The three visit forty cities across five continents to document buskers remarking they are "universally misunderstood, under appreciated, and often criminalized."

Including some (mis)adventures, hundreds of supporters help the trio with advice, equipment, support, money, time, and encouragement in completion of the global trek. Starting in Lisbon and ending in Rio, the whole trip reveals trials and tribulations as it unfolds.

Covering 40 cities in 10 months, the plan was to visit a new city every 6 days. "It was incredible for the first month, tough for the second, and disturbing from then on."

Some busker interviews conducted were tales of desperation and dispair. This contributed to surprising revelations and challenges that face the modern busker today.

Of particular concern is where busking and street performing is considered taboo - even illegal. "Busking is not a crime" is the cause you can find at the link below.
