Vialka at RiceAbove#8

Vialka hail from deepest France, via everywhere and nowhere. They are a devilishly high-spirited guitar/drums duo who tour hard and fast across the world. Their music skips joyfully across borders, channeling desert blues, Chinese folk songs, scatter rock and European gypsy song dynamics in a whirlwind of dervish energy. Their endless gypsy punk folk rock tales, hard hitting poly-rhythms and yelps and howls make for a 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.

I'm from a Malaysian creative culture publication called Aesthetics.

For our June issue, the theme will be 'Environmentalism NOW' and I would love to include your graff work "the grass is greener on the other side..."

Maybe we can keep in touch; hopefully you would agree to have your work included in our publication.
