Background: Montreal-based Japanese psych-rock group TEKE::TEKE will be performing one of their first concerts in the U.S. at UNT. 

Blending flute, trombone, traditional Japanese instruments and guitar, TEKE::TEKE produces a sound reminiscent of 1960s and 70s era psychedelic Japanese soundtracks with modern twists. The band’s name is meant to replicate the sound of “clattering,” and they aim to explore onomatopoeias with their music. Their album, Shiushi, was nominated for the 2021 Polaris Music Prize.
