Each voice and songwriter will showcase individuality, yet a unique dimension of this group is blending these voices into a soul-stirring choir with intricate harmonies woven throughout, led by music educator, arranger and director, Rubina Kimiia. Members of the band show their versatility not only as singers and song-writers but musicians too. Music maestro, engineer and producer, Will Kepa, brilliantly crafts traditional instrumentation with contemporary elements. The combined strengths of Kimiia and Kepa, together with the individual and collective talents of the ensemble, showcasing original songs with themes of today and yesteryear, promises to deliver to the listener a platter of musical flavours found throughout Austra-Nesia.
