Our 9th Birthday + CD Launch "Satellites"

Our March Foco Nuevo will be special, the band energised from our tour of Cuba, celebrating our 9th birthday and launching our new album, Satellites.

Special guests, Luna Junction along with friends Ovidio and Oscar Orellana, as well as Nelson Mansilla will make it a night to remember.

So don't miss out. We'll see you there!
