In addition to being one of the most popular live acts in Scandinavia they have performed for audiences all over the world, from various corners of Africa to Svalbard, from the legendary Apollo in NYC to the Roxy in LA and in 2012 they were invited to perform for Paul Simon at the prestigious Polar Music Prize.
