In May 2016 the duo released their debut ‘Musica da Terra’, which caterpalted them into stardom, gaining a lot of media attention which have led to many international tours. This led to large media influencers such as CNN, Rolling Stones Magazine, OkayAfrika, Marie Claire Magazine, and Elle Magazine, amongst others, doing stories and having coverage of them.
