Who is Minka?
MINKA is a funky synth/rock/dance/jazz Japanese-inspired, Philly-based band out here doing the thing while dripping with sex-appeal (think Bowie meets Prince meets Larry David and then sprinkle in some Talking Heads, Marvin Gaye and 2Pac).
Can't picture it? Well then you must come see for yourself and DANCE WITH MINKA!
