With the high demand for Japanese artists to perform in North America, the cost of visas and all the immigration red tape involved with traveling so far for us including distributing their music to other countries is very difficult and the expense is great, but the musicians are doing everything in their power to reach their fans.
The name of this group comes from the Spanish and French word for tea, a strong cup possibly, with a dose of hallucinogenic qualities as their music takes you on an inbound train... destination.. the inner core of your brain which recognizes the brilliance if not genius of such instrumental pleasure and this unit can only be found in Japan.
A type of ear candy that just one piece will not satisfy your palette, you must have more. Addictive!
My JHouse Rocks
As Japan is well known across the globe for its eccentric music scenes like visual kei unique especially to Tokyo and the larger cities through out the country, defining so many genres of music, it is difficult to pigeon-hole Te'. What comes to mind is 'post rock art' with unbelievable instrumentals, eccentric, seductive and just down right mind blowing sound.
