Four times at “Rock al Parque” (Rock at the Park Music Festival), achieving a National Prize for Best Song Composition and Best Rock Band at Shock Awards. Trough their career, they have collaborated with Ivan Benavidez (Colombian producer who has worked with Carlos Vives and Sidestepper) and Bernardo Ossa (Latin Grammy Awards). They have carried out music for films: “Juana Tiene el Pelo de Oro” (directed by Pacho Bottía) and “Para Bailar se necesitan 2” a shortfilm filmed in Barcelona and showed at Cannes 2008 Short film Showcase.
Some other achieves: openers at Alanis Morrisete concert in Bogotá, the World Youth Festival in Panamá and the film “Paraiso Travel” directed by Simon Brand. They also have carried out “music workshops” along the Bogotá Public Libraries Net. Nowadays, they are planning a national tour of concerts, accompanied by mass media interviews and pressing.
