Taking the melodies and energy of Andean music and bringing it bang up to date with Son, Reggae and funky Afro-Latin rhythms, the band unites musicians and instruments from Peru, Bolivia, Spain, France, China and the UK, and sets their highly original music, alongside socially conscious lyrics to a tight rhythm section.?
