Spacy Carnival: Galactic, Big Chief Juan Pardo and the Golden Comanche with "Ha Di Ka"

Galactic, a New Orleans jam band, brings us Ha Di Ka - their reworking of a Mardi Gras Indian song. Formed as an octet in 1994, they make music based on their influences of hip hop, electronic, world music, rock, blues and jazz. Ha Di Ka is off of their album of Carnival inspired music titled Carnivale Electricos (2012) and features Mardi Gras Indian big chief Juan Pardo and his tribe The Golden Comanche on vocals.
