Marylise Frecheville and Eric Boros

French duo Vialka, percussionist Marylise Frecheville and guitarist Eric Boros, will stage a night of music mixed with gypsy, punk, folk and rock.

Vialka's music skips joyfully across borders, channeling desert blues, Chinese folk songs, scatter rock and European gypsy song dynamics in a whirlwind of energy. Their endless gypsy, punk, folk, rock tales, hard-hitting poly-rhythms and yelps and howls make for an intoxicating brew.

The dynamic duo have been lugging their nomadic turbo folk sound and modus vivendi all around the planet since the turn of the century. Deriving its influences from traditional and modern underground music from around the globe, Vialka's music is based on the frenetic interaction between Frecheville's syncopated drumming and singing and Boros' orchestral guitar playing — and is delivered with ecstatic energy, humor, lust for life, and a sophisticated musical language and subliminal connection all their own.

Vialka is not just a musical project, but a social scientific experiment, attempting to meet, communicate and work with extraordinary and little known musicians and artists from everywhere and nowhere. They have toured extensively in over 50 countries across Europe, Africa, North America and Asia, and have collaborated with Chinese musician Xiao He, French mbira player/drummer Andrew Dymond, Italian saxophonist Jacopo Andreini, Macedonian artist collective OPA, Swiss cinematographer Sebastien Riond, French eco-designer Cedric Carles and New Zealand drummer Kieran Monaghan.
