Most recently the group won the Best Folk/Roots award and also placed 2nd for the Best Song across all categories at the Toronto Independent Music Awards.

Teaching & Other Details
An original technique that employs using proper warm-up and vocal care as prescribed by voice doctors, breath-work and learning to sing from the diaphragm, as well as energy work that helps vocal students to access their own connection to the music and bring forward their own unique style and voice. For songwriting Amai Kuda also works with students to find their sources of inspiration so they can bring fourth work that is absolutely unique to them. With her musical partner Y Josephine, classes are also offered in advanced cajon, intermediate bongo and conga as well as basic djembe playing.
Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays in the evenings are ideal, but I am also able to make time during the day mid-week.
