TEKE::TEKE began as an homage to legendary Japanese guitarist Takeshi “Terry”
Terauchi. Composed of musicians from well-known Montreal bands (Pawa Up First,
Patrick Watson, Boogat, Gypsy Kumbia Orchestra), the band quickly came into its
own by blending Japanese Eleki surf-rock with elements of modern music that include
shoegaze, post-punk, and psych rock, as well as Latin and Balkan influences. They
use standard rock gear alongside traditional Japanese instruments
(shinobu flute, shamisen, taisho koto) to take a fresh look at the rising electric future.
