Google searches turn up nothing, no one knows a thing about them or any of their songs.

    What happens after that is quite a story.

    Well worth seeing.

    I saw it this afternoon, based on your recommendation. I'm really glad I did.

    Mrs. Barbarian loves pandas. She collects all kinds of panda things, but she really likes the panda figurines made by Artisana Rinconada. They started out as two guys in a corner of their house in Paraguay (hence Rinconada). Today, they have a larger studio, with a number of people making them. They aren't molded; each one is by hand.

    These are what they produce now:

    Not as sophisticated in design, but I like them just as much. Mrs. B was pleased.
