sample the album:
"Hailing from deepest France, via everywhere and nowhere, Vialka are a devilishly high-spirited guitar/drums duo who tour hard and fast across the world. Together they create a music that skips joyfully across borders, channeling desert blues, Chinese folk songs, scatter rock and European gypsy song dynamics. This whirlwind of dervish energy, combines endless gypsy punk folk rock tales, hard hitting poly-rhythms, yelps and howls into one feverishly danceable and intoxicating brew. Like 'A Hawk And A Hacksaw' or 'The Ex' their openness to new sounds and cultures makes you feel alive and shows that 'world punk rock' need not be a dirty phrase. Succès Planétaire International ("International Worldwide Success"), is their latest album and third recording with engineer Bob Drake. The album features collaborations with François Marcziniak and Cyrielle Faure (tuba and flute), Crank Sturgeon (vocals and guitar), Andrew Dymond (mbira), and Xiao He (vocals and Hunan pipa)."-Vialka
