Hard hitting lyrics and groove, yet delivered in the most accessible way. Their power packed live show is second to none & now world renowned, they've played across the planet, through EUROPE, UK, CANADA, USA, & JAPAN rocking crowds from Tokyo to Texas and everywhere in between. They now bring their hot new International sound to the stage. Lead by the multi talented, relentless energy of Natalie Pa'apa'a this group is the REAL DEAL.
The new album saw them working alongside the Legendary Sly & Robbie, special Guests such as Queen Ifrica & Jah Mason, engineers such as James ‘Bonzai' Caruso (Gwen Stefani, Nas, Damien Marley, Madonna) Colin ‘Bulby' York from Kingston, Jamaica (Rihanna, Jimmy Cliff, Britney Spears, Madonna, Michael Franti, UB40) & Chris Macro (Scribe, Katchafire).
