"At a time when the prevailing image of Portland music was of sad dudes crying into their banjos, three women playing dubbed-out punk funk took the city's basements by ecstatic force. Formed in 2008, the trio—two-thirds percussion, one-part baritone guitar, with occasional ghostly melodica and vocals consisting mostly of heavily reverbed whoops and yelps—neither looked nor sounded like any other band in town. The group grabbed the scene's attention immediately. In 2009, it upset NPR darlings Blind Pilot to top Willamette Week's annual Best New Band poll, and signed to Kill Rock Stars for an anticipated full-length debut." -Willamette Week

Daniela Karina
Daniela Karina channels underground diasporic club from around the world to share her vision of a polyrhythmic Pangaea with the dance floor, finding inspiration in emerging transcultural sounds and reinvented ancestral rhythms. She can be found bringing the fringes of global dance to the Pacific Northwest as a resident at Club Culo and Club Tropicana.
