My Review:
Its all horns and upbeat energy. Great for driving and working. They are from somewhere in spain, and I don't speak spanish, so i'm lost. Heres a translated bit from their site Here.
Farnes Ali sees the light in January 2008, musicians from other bands disappeared recently Skaparapid, Skirmish and Folk Fuzi Musikistarodecide unirse and create this new band through the experience of its members becomes a hand ska rhythms fused with traditional Valencian and Mediterranean touches of Balkan music.
The band name comes from the union of the word Ali, part of the expression "Make ali" (1. Make ali: avenirse two or some people, for his genius, or ajudarse mutually understood and to make some purpose: 2. postverbal probably allied to as delirium, however, announcement, etc.) and the word Farnes (synonymous mixture, mixing). Ali Farnes is an expression of that new creation comes to say: Group to make mixture that perfectly defines the new band.
