On March 3, 2012, Dunia played a gig with the True Warriors in honor of our departed friend Ari Up, aka Madussa. Here’s a clip of Dunia opening the show with the tune “True Warrior” (for which the band was named):
Founded in 1996 by the songwriting trio of Dunia Best (vocals), Todd Nocera (keyboards), and Aram Sinnreich (bass), the progressive soul collective Brave New Girl has been a staple of the New York City scene for over a decade.
