Ars Nova Workshop and Asian Arts Initiative present the psychedelic drone family band TENGGER at the Pearl Street Viaduct on Tuesday, October 3.
TENGGER is a traveling musical family, made up of Pan-Asian couple itta and Marqido, who create their brand of psychedelic New-Age drone magic through the use of harmonium, voice, and toy instruments (played by itta) and analogue synths (played by Marqido). The duo originally started out with the moniker “10” but since the birth of their son RAAI (who joins them on tour and often on stage) in 2012, have called themselves TENGGER (meaning “unlimited expanse of sky” in Mongolian and “huge sea” in Hungarian) to mark the expansion of the family. Travel, as spiritual experience in real environments, and the sound between the space and the audience have been central themes of their works. According to Pitchfork, “TENGGER have the potential to be a major force: Their music is conceptually rich and frequently rewarding… The further they drift towards formlessness, the more effective they become.”
