We The Folk: fiery folk-fusion coming to your ears from a collection of voices and instruments, “mixing up their sometimes Spanish, sometimes English, Latin-Klezmer-Folk hybrid of music in a stunning swirl of rhythm” (You Make My World Rock). With acoustic guitar, violin, accordion, bass, percussion, and plenty of voice, this Los Angeles-based band sings the songs of Cali-folk, young and old, and gives everyone a reason to dance. We The Folk began as a trio performing impromptu shows in public spaces around the UCLA campus. Student demand rapidly transformed these “pop up” performances into dance parties and official campus events. We The Folk grew into a recognizable campus presence after headlining the World Music and Movement Festival and opening for David Grisman as part of the Center of the Art of Performance in Royce Hall. As a quintet, We The Folk has played shows in major Los Angeles venues such as The Troubadour, The Teragram Ballroom, Hotel Cafe, and Black Rabbit Rose. The band holds several residencies around the greater Los Angeles area. After experimenting with different labels for a few years, We The Folk has assumed the genre of “LA Folk”, happily representing the voice of the Angeleno and enveloping its audiences in a dynamic and energetic experience.
