A multi-genre mini orchestra: soul/indonesian pop/surf/kenyan/eastern european/jazz/calypso/mexican. Yes, for real!
TEK TEK Ensemble is a multi-genre mini orchestra.
Each member performs on at least two instruments, skillfully exploited for an impressive array of musical genres and expression. The balance of three guys and three girls captivate audiences with exclamatory trombone and trumpet; hedonistic violins and accordion; deeply pulsating drums and bass; wild psychedelic electric guitar; and a rich smearing of harmonized singing (and wailing) thrown on top.
TEK TEK perform virtuosic and original music inspired by tropical jungles, late night Balkan weddings, 1960s chic, and shamanistic desert rituals.
The band is representative of the fine quality music coming out of Melbourne and features members of: The Bombay Royale, Vulgargrad, The Puta Madre Brothers, Empat Lima,
The Sugar Fed Leopards and Johnnie and the Johnnie Johnnies.
TEK TEK Ensemble are from Melbourne, Australia but have performed numerous times across Australia, and twice across Europe.
