WE PLAY MUSIC INSPIRED BY THE PLACES WE COME FROM AND THE PLACES WE HAVE LIVED, THOSE THAT HAVE COME BEFORE US, AND THE NOMADIC GYPSY SPIRIT. WE BELIEVE THAT MUSIC IS A PRIMARY FORM OF EXPRESSION AND WE USE IT TO DESCRIBE THE WORLD AS WE SEE IT.
TOCAMOS LA MÚSICA INSPIRADA POR LOS BARRIOS EN DONDE NACIMOS Y EN LOS QUE HEMOS VIVIDO DESPUÉS, AQUELLOS QUE NOS PRECEDEN, BASADA EN EL ESPÍRITU NÓMADA. CREEMOS QUE LA MÚSICA ES UNA FORMA EXPRESIÓN Y LA UTILIZAMOS PARA CONTAR COMO VEMOS EL MUNDO.
