Overview

The Colorado-based band joins the Boulder Phil for the first time with their global-infused modern-indie sound.
“Just about top of my list for a good night out, DeVotchKa presents an effervescent, eclectic mix encompassing everything from Romany, Greek and Polka to Latino and Mariachi. All this bound together in an American melting pot with punk and romantic folk roots; and played with a combination of reckless passion and top-notch musicianship. Delirious joy… guaranteed.”
– Andrew Dowdall, The Line of Best Fit

Beyond the Performance

Nick Urata, DeVotchKa’s lead singer, on the band’s unique sound

“When I started the band, I just had a vision of where I wanted to go, and in many ways it looked exactly like what we are now, but you are right, I had no idea how to get there, I have always been drawn to songs from other countries and cultures, and I loved rock and roll, but I knew we would get no where if I couldn’t sing so that was a big hurdle for me. When I met each member, Jeanie was experimenting with Balkan brass and Victorian music, Tom was trained in the classics but loved the Cure and Joy Division, Shawn was learning Afro-Cuban and mariachi rhythms; so it was a great place to start.”
