It’s said that the group’s musical “kaleidoscope” offers a “high-octane” sensation of “pure joy.” They are seven scintillating women, creating an international fusion of African music, R&B/pop vocals, jazz-funk, Latin and Reggae, steeped in Gospel harmonies. Comprised of seven, LA-based
women, this group can be booked in “pairs”, groups of three, four, seven or full band (i.e. with guitar, base and keyboards) – easily
Experience this group as a healing force propelled by the language of the drum. In the tradition of Ghana, West Africa, women gather in the moonlight to create music and songs about life’s joys and sorrows. This spirit of celebration and strength is the fire igniting these musicians. Their captivating performance is a manifestation of the power of authentic sound to elevate and inspire audiences everywhere, across all boundaries of age and demographics.
Since 1996, they have performed locally and nationally at many colleges, universities, performing arts venues, music festivals, and community events. They have opened for James Brown, Mickey Hart, Los Lobos, Yolanda Adams, Sugar Hill Gang, Michelle Shocked, Spearhead, James Ingram, Harry Belafonte and many others. Their celebratory concert appearances are not to be missed, and their informative school shows reach the next generation with humor, fun and musical understanding.
They have been featured in: "The World Festival of Sacred Music - the Americas" documentary (Catchlight Films, 2000) and on The World Festival CD release (Bindu Records); "Sister Celebration", John Anson Ford Amphitheater's 2001 Summer Series; "Drum Magazine", March/April 2002 issue; and L.A. Direct Magazine, May 2004. Their vocal percussion style was recently featured in a national Hyundai commercial. They currently appear in a movie trailer for KCRW 89.9FM, a major Los Angeles radio station, in Laemmle Theaters, and they have released their debut CD, a feast for the ears that will keep you dancing and yearning for more.
