We the Folk
We the Folk is a kaleidescopic force of Latin Gypsy Pop launching you through the stratosphere and onto the dance floor.
Featuring David Villafaña’s magnetic lead vocals and Gabriel Wheaton’s fiddling flair, We The Folk began as an acoustic trio performing impromptu shows in public spaces around the UCLA campus. Student demand quickly transformed these performances into dance parties and official events, making We The Folk a recognizable campus presence.
Expanding through Los Angeles and Southern California, We The Folk has played at major venues like the Troubador and the Teragram Ballroom, sharing performances with an eclectic range of groups from The Dustbowl Revival to Børns.
We The Folk was featured on NPR’s Alt.Latino as a favorite submission of the 2015 Tiny Desk Concert Contest. In 2014 they were awarded the Las Doñas award for Best Band at UCLA’s Spring Sing.
In April 2016, We The Folk released their debut full-length album, “WTF.” It is available on Bandcamp, iTunes and Spotify.
