Subject: Baffin Island, Here We Come!
3 months after Patagonia, the team is back in action in Baffin Island. Our ultimate objective is to bring our jamming to a whole new level. We hope the boat ride, the 500kg of gear and food we will have to carry 50km and the 3 polar bears hunting in the region will help our musical inspiration. We heard stories of an unlimited playground. We are super psyched! We have a satellite phone to keep you guys informed on our new musical compositions. Stay tuned!
