Soundscan reported last week that eXtraOrdinary rendition by Rupa & the April Fishes broke into the top ten for world music sales. This benchmark for sales puts the album in the company of Israel Kamakawiwo, Orchestra Baobab, Manu Chao, and of course, Celtic Woman! Congratulations to Rupa & the April Fishes for reaching the top 10.
Currently the band is on tour in Europe and gathering more buzz as they play in Paris, Berlin, Barcelona, London and other major cities.
Stateside, Rupa & the April Fishes are in this month's issue of Relix Magazine in a feature on the current San Francisco music scene. "Say what you will about globalization," Says Relix's Jeff Tamarkin, "in Rupa & The April Fishes it’s got a killer soundtrack."
