Auntie Flo has gone from strength to strength, recently winning a residency at Plastic People in London, appearing at various European festivals, as well achieving continual praise for his ‘Highlife’ night. In 2013 Auntie Flo was a nominee for the Scottish Album Of The Year award.

Rise Kagona is a guitar hero to many on two continents! The BBC's Andy Kershaw cites him as having changed his life, and John Peel famously interviewed the band from their kitchen. Rise is possibly the only living guitarist attributed with starting a whole new genre 'Harare Jit'.
