Always exploring beyond the musical mainstream, in China they performed together with several generations of folk musicians and in Brazil they recorded music with the legendary percussionist Nereu Mocotó.

“Like a wild forest, the music reflects life in all its colorful variety while still having a firm sense of unity. In spite of all the influences, this isn’t a postmodern patchwork of genres, but rather a timeless snapshot of natural beauty”. – Jakob Bækgaard, All About Jazz
“The band had a breathlessness and natural instinct that makes a refreshing change from the earnest approach of some bands… let’s hope they come back to play the jazz club circuit soon. “– Jazzwise UK
