Break Out the Violins - Visa

A little Russian ... a little Armenian ... some rock-n-roll ... a touch of theatrics ... a whole lotta cool!
Visa (now VIZA) is based in Los Angeles, California and blends so many of my favorite musical styles into one fabulously awesome experience.  Formed in 2000, they have released two EPs and four albums - the most recent, "Carnivalia" in 2011.  All the standard rock instruments are there - guitars, bass, drums - but they also bring in some wonderfully exotic (at least in this corner of the world) instruments like oud, tar, saz, zurna and duduk.
