News from Australia - Land Down Under

Yunasi hit the 'airwaves'!... One of Australias top DJ's, Angela Catterns has been listening to Yunasi in her car after she heard the band play in Nairobi, and will be including one of the tracks in her Quantas 'Soul Food' show which will play on Quantas in flight entertainment throughout February 09.

QRadio is broadcast on all domestic and international Qantas flights to a potential audience of over 2-3 million listeners every month. The print run for the Qantas Entertainment Guide is 30,000 copies which includes a synopsis and a web address for guests. The connection with the Qantas brand is powerful and the reach is broad.

'"Yunasi did really well at Bluesfest - they were one of our better selling bands for their CD's at our merchandise tent, and that greatly reflects on how well received they were by Blues fest's audience. pretty good going when up against the likes of Sinead O'Connor, Buddy Guy, John Fogerty , Keith urban, Jools Holland and lot's more. They really are to be congratulated. Please come back soon."

"I was first introduced to these guys (Yunasi) when I first saw the
video for this song on "National Geo Music" and BANG BABY!!
WHAT A SONG!! WHAT A GROUP!! Makes you want to jump on a plane 
and head to Kenya! I bought the entire album and it is by far 
the most incredible CD I EVER bought!! If you ever took a chance 
to buy something you weren't sure of, here's your chance at 
redemption!!
