Pato 2A period of deep reflection and meditation left Pato feeling guided to continue his musical journey. In early 2005 Spiritual Guide Yahe Boda invited Pato to do a short tour across America to “Gather the People in Praise.”  Pato’s most recent release is Destination Paradise (2008). He began 2009 with the formation of a new band, The Now Generation, who undertook a state wide tour of the United States, with a commitment to spreading the teachings of The Urantia Book. In the early 2010 Pato performed a special Ska-version show in Tijuana with The Ghostownians as backing-band. Throughout the performance he gave a peace message to the audience to counter the violence there at the time.

Perfect Giddimani cut his first tune as Little Ninja before settling on his current stage name due to his perfectionism as a recording artist.  Perfect began deejaying in the sound system Trend Setter from Bamboo where he recorded his first dubplates.  The first song to break was “Lock Me Up” in 2004  but Perfect’s style was really revealed with “Handcart Bwoy” in 2005.   His first album, “Giddimani”, was released the following year and included many of his first singles.  Perfect’s second album “Born Dead With Life” was released in 2008.
