Greetings! Sheriff Ariff & The Wali Sanga are on the verge of releasing their debut EP with 7 original songs for your listening pleasure. The excitement is thrilling and Alexander Ariff (aka Sheriff Ariff) has been working hard on the record since October 2010. This campaign is was organized in order to manufacture the album. For those of you who do not know the sound of the band: it's a large groove based band capturing jazzy funk sounds rooted  in the music of Jamiroquai, Steely Dan and Billy Joel.

The album is nearly done and the artwork is ready for printing. Thanks to some very talented engineers and producers, this album sounds amazing. In order to have copies of the album pressed and available to the public offline, Sheriff Ariff & The Wali Sanga need your support. The album will be placed online for download. If you want to get a sneak peak of what you're in for, feel free to visit our bandcamp page where we will be selling it in addition to iTunes, Amazon, etc.
