"Whatever is happening to the immigrant community is always affecting us. Right now everybody is in a state of alertness and trying to figure out how to keep it together and raise our voices against these issues that are happening. For sure it affects our music, especially in our concerts. We like to remind people that it's important to raise our voices and participate in our society for a better world."
