Their vocals are soulful and poetic calls to action, calling for equal rights and justice for women. At home, in Sao Paulo, all three girls are social activists, working relentlessly for equality for women inside Brazilian society. They
are all artists in their own right, and have recently formed this vocal trio to form a united female front in the male dominated Brazilian reggae sound system culture.
