The members of Ka-Tet had been playing music together in various combinations spanning various projects for a number of years before inspiration and other productive energies began to pull them together into the ensemble you see today. The formation of the band was largely - as most truly blessed things in life tend to be - a result of undeniable galactic synchronicity and the graceful acquiescence of the band members to the call of the Universal. The name Ka-Tet itself speaks of the spiritual and communal cohesiveness of the group. While multiple interpretations of this linguistically ambiguous name are possible, it is perhaps most significant to note that Ka is an ancient Egyptian word referring to the human soul while -Tet is a suffix referring to a group of individuals working together towards a common goal. The name goes a long way to succinctly describe this group of gentlemen striving to provide listeners with a musical experience many folks do not even suspect is possible in these days of artistic and social degradation. Regeneration is a key word in these troubled times and we at Ka-Tet strive to be a force that brings positive growth and change to whatever environment we happen to find ourselves in; we hope that you will participate with us in our travels to exotic sonic worlds, we are waiting just for you!!
