DeVotchKa is a gypsy punk group from Denver that's named after the Russian word for girl.

The group is known for melding rock with everything from Eastern European wedding music to Mexican Norteno.

DeVotchKa spent its early career touring with similar bands like Calexico and Gogol Bordello.

The band's first break came when Nic Harcourt of KCRW introduced his listeners to a then unknown rock band on his daily radio show, Morning Becomes Eclectic. Filmmakers Valerie Faris and Jonathan Dayton were listening that day, and stumbled upon the sound for their movie, "Little Miss Sunshine."
