One of the best surprises of the Vancouver Folk Festival today. Absolutely wonderful, they had the audience dancing from the moment they stepped on the stage.

Here’s the entry from the Folk Fest on Watcha Clan:

Watcha Clan’s music sings with the spirit of traveling people. Powered by the riveting voice and stagecraft of lead vocalist Sista K, they juggle acoustic and electro rhythms and languages (French, Arabic, Hebrew, English) to the beat of the memories they have and the people and the places they visit. Musical nomads, their songs move from Eastern European melodies to the chaabi, the traditional music of Algiers to hip hop kicks.
