Aya Safiya and Tano Brock have been musical collaborators for over a decade. They met at a music camp in their teenage years, and began playing Greek and Balkan music together. In 2014, along with Cecilia Peña-Govea and Miguel León, they formed Taraf de Locos, a SF Bay Area group that created a unique blend of Balkan and Afro-Latin music styles. Following an album release and tour with Taraf de Locos, Aya and Tano traveled to Eastern Europe together to discover and study music. They have since been collaborating on a regular basis; continuing to play Greek and Balkan traditional styles, as well as contemporary original music. Since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, Aya and Tano have been frequently performing live-stream concerts from their home studio, both independently and as a part of larger concerts/festivals.

Many had been in other well respected groups such as Sviraci, The People's International Sliver String Macedonian Band, Born to Drone, Sidesaddle, M'Earthtones, Peninsula Women's Chorus, Westwind and the Slavonian Traveling Band. The group has gained polish over the years, but not lost the friendship and humor that is the basis for playing music together.
