    since I saw this band the first time I was hooked. They just enjoy making music period. The West African grooves are fantastic, authentic and the lyrics are right on point. I really enjoy mixing this band live and look forward to working with them in the studio.

    [This band] bolster any event with their high energy enthusiasm. The EWF Council has hired them multiple times for events we host including our September festival. The music is accessible enough for any party-goer or dancer, but is not simple. The cultural layers, the ensemble’s execution of the music, and the pairing of traditional influences with contemporary technique makes this band’s work appreciable by the most sophisticated music connoisseur.
