Today is #BandCampFriday, and we’ve posted a brand new song, which we wrote with our friend David Ritz (the music writer who, among other things, coauthored Marvin Gaye’s “Sexual Healing.”), in honor of someone we all love very dearly. To record this tune, we teamed up with our Brave New Girl brother Todd Nocera (keys)… More New Track: “Blurry Vision”
We’re playing TWO SETS this Friday night at the Artemis DC, supported by our Tributary Project buddies Rob and Chris. Lots of original reggae, ska, and soul tunes, plus a few dope covers (Vivien Goldman, Billie Holiday). Many tracks from our recent album BEDFELLOWS. Come check us out!
Join us in Washington DC with the Tributary Project and Artsouca and we’ll take you to places no one has gone before. We are joined by instrumentalists from around the world with global grooves and harmonic melodies. See us at Bossa Wednesday night, February 15th!
So… after about three months on the radio charts, our single “It’s Never Easy, Si” from the BEDFELLOWS album has risen to number two on the World Indie Music Top 100 chart. We are… …amazed… …moved… …honored… …confused… Where do we go from here? Stay tuned…

We love our friends in the Specialized Project UK — a ska-soul supergroup that’s dedicated to raising money for charities like Teenage Cancer Trust. This year, they put together an all-star version of the classic tune “(What’s So Funny ‘Bout) Peace, Love, and Understanding,” featuring Dunia on backing vox and Aram on bass, along with… More Christmas Special-ized
We’ve got a new single out! It’s our NYC street party-style take on the Annie Ross/Wardell Gray classic jazz tune (also made re-famous by the great Joni Mitchell). We recorded this for the Specialized Project compilation “Our Way,” featuring four discs of Rat Pack-era tunes reimagined by today’s ska, reggae, and punk bands (including another… More Dunia & Aram get TWISTED
Dunia and Aram are taking a moment to create in beautiful Victoria, British Columbia. The lovely people at local music store Tapestry were so helpful and generous. We have everything we need to work on new material for the next album.
We recently had the amazing opportunity to work with artists in our local area, known as the DMV (District of Columbia, Maryland, Virginia) to build what has turned into a concert and compilation called Out of Our Shells. For several months in 2022, Dunia, Aram and master recording engineer Neil Perry (a former Hit Factory… More Out of Our Shells Concert
We made new friends! Dunia & Aram have joined forces with the Tributary Project, an amazing world music fusion supergroup.

Together,… More Tributary Project
