SIERRA-KILO-ALPHA Takes out the Best World Music ARIA Award!

The very nature of our new album, Sierra Kilo Alpha, was built on the strength of cultural diversity and is all about embracing the international diaspora that exists today.

Maltese, Jamaican,Scottish, Australian, Trinidadian, Venezuelan, Greek,Indian, Dutch, English, Italian, Spanish and then some, make up the orchestra and our sole intention was to make an album of International Ska, universal music, embracing the global community.

To win this World Music ARIA, is such an accolade and offers recognition of what we have been working towards as a band for many years.

Thanks ARIA and thanks to you our Fans.

SKARIAS!!!!

‘Sierra-Kilo-Alpha’ nominated for 2016 ARIA Award

Melbourne Ska Orchestra’s second album ‘Sierra-Kilo-Alpha’ has picked up a nomination for Best World Music Album at the 2016 ARIA Fine Arts Awards.

No strangers to the ARIA Awards, MSO received two nominations for our debut self-titled album in 2013 as well as a Best Live Act nomination in 2014. This will however be the first time MSO have been nominated in the Best World Music Album category.

The nomination, which follows a huge set at Splendour In The Grass and a UK Tour, has capped off a massive year.

The awards will be presented on Wednesday 5th October at the ARIA Nominations Event in Sydney.

Wish us luck…. Skavoovie!
