The very nature of our new album, Sierra Kilo Alpha, was built on the strength of cultural diversity and is all about embracing the international diaspora that exists today.
Maltese, Jamaican,Scottish, Australian, Trinidadian, Venezuelan, Greek,Indian, Dutch, English, Italian, Spanish and then some, make up the orchestra and our sole intention was to make an album of International Ska, universal music, embracing the global community.
To win this World Music ARIA, is such an accolade and offers recognition of what we have been working towards as a band for many years.
Thanks ARIA and thanks to you our Fans.
