Bio

They are led by Oscar Jimenez, an Aria nominated singer, songwriter and producer, born in Colombia now based in Melbourne. Through Multicultural Arts Victoria they collaborated with Nhatty Man, a household name in Ethiopia and the Diaspora representing a mix of traditional Ethiopian roots, pop, reggae and Dancehall. They first performed together, with Ethio-Jazz ensemble The Lalibelas at the Melbourne International Arts Festival 2015, and again at St Kilda Festival 2016.
