We created MINKA to make people move.
In a teleportation accident, we fused Talking Heads and David Bowie. We live, breathe, and procreate in Philly.
MINKA has played Underground Arts, Johnny Brenda’s, and Boot & Saddle, among other Philadelphia venues.The group has also played over 100 house parties in Philly. They have performed with a variety of local and national acts, including Andrew WK, Protomen, West Philly Orchestra, and Johnny Showcase.
MINKA has been featured by yvynyl, WXPN, Philadelphia Weekly, philly.com, JUMP Magazine, and Philebrity.
Since their formation in Philadelphia during the summer of 2015, Tektonic has crafted a unique style of instrumental fusion dubbed “East Coast Metallic Groove Shit.” Described recently as “if Tauk and Papadosio had a baby who then heard of Meshuggah,” each member of the band carries with them a vastly different listening background to make each song increasingly diverse from its predecessor. They released their first full length album, Partly Human, on October 6th, 2017 which showcases the interwoven synthesizers, instrumentation, attention to melody and intense energy that Tektonic has become known for. Over the last couple of years, the band has played numerous venues in the tri-state area including a residency at Bourbon & Branch, Silk City, Kung Fu Necktie, World Cafe Live, 1984, The Gateway, Underground Arts, & Hemlock Groove Festival. During that time, Tektonic has collaborated and shared the stage with artists that include Consider the Source, The Magic Beans, lespecial, Teddy Midnight, Luke & Jesse Miller, Mike Greenfield, Bent Knee, Mike Candela, and more.
