Holding the title of \"most well travelled unknown band in the world\".

The dynamic duo of France\'s Marylise Frecheville and Canada native Eric Boros have been bringing their gypsy punk music and lifestyle to all corners of the world for five years, originally as the rhythm section of the Swiss based performance striptease jazz-punk band NNY, and now with Vialka. They have lived in Switzerland, Slovenia, Canada, and are currently calling France their home between tours.
Vialka\'s music,based on the simplistic interaction between Marylise\'s drumming and singing and Eric\'s guitar playing, draws its influences from traditional
and modern music from around the world - played with bombastic energy and a sophisticated musical language all their own.
They have released two albums on their own \"Manufracture\" record label: \"Tonight
I Show You Fuck\" and \"Republic of the Bored and Boring\". Vialka is not just music, but a social scientific experiment, attempting to meet and communicate
with people and musicians all around the world. They have toured extensively in over thirty countries across Europe, Africa, North America and Asia, including recent tours to China and ex-Yugoslavia, and have collaborated with Italian saxophonist Jacopo Andreini, and Macedonian artist collective OPA.
Future plans include tours in North America, Europe, and Asia by land, as well as releasing a new album and DVD featuring a documentary about their Chinese tour.
