D Faktion Nyne
October 29, 2020
Founded as a means to heal grief through music, D Faktion Nyne is a multi-generational family band that gives deeper meaning to the term family. Performing Waila, a genre of Tohono O’odham folk music that combines Chotis, Mazurkas, Wailas, Kwaliyas, and Cumbias, music has bonded this family through multiple tragedies and many triumphs. Damon Enriquez, the father, has always used music as a means to connect with his family and his community. From his musical origins playing with his grandfather, he now counts 150 high school and middle school students as his musical pupils. Above all Waila is social, and as a result it brings people and cultures together.
D Faktion Nyne features four brothers, two sisters, and their dad having fun playing Waila. They have no rules and no boundaries, with ALL members having equal say in everything they do.
