D Faktion Nyne and Mumsigo Tribe Bands


D Faktion Nyne and Mumsigo Tribe Bands are Arizona based multi-generational bands with popular dance music of the Natives of Southern Arizona.

Popularly known as “Chicken Scratch”, Waila is the energetic dance music of the Native peoples of southern Arizona. Waila features the intertwining melodies of saxophone and accordion propelled by the rhythms of guitar, bass and drums.

Playing the Polkas and Two-Steps that are hallmarks of the Scratch sound, these multi-generational bands exemplify the confluence of music from Tohono O’odham and European culture.

In June 2012, D Faktion 9 Band won the first prize in the Chicken Scratch Battles of the Band.
