The Tjak were born in 2001 somewhere in Portugal, perhaps on an afternoon when the sea breeze blew and inspired Gabriel Gomes, Pedro Sotiry and Victor Bandeira to unite the journeys of their lives, the influences of East, Asia and Africa lands and the electronic music and to create a sound that invites to dance and contemplation.
Diogo Ribeiro joined them in 2009 and brought with him even more expansive atmospheres. The raw material used is Victor Bandeira's recordings of songs, environments and sounds of animal life in his travels in Africa, South America, Southwest Asia and New Guinea. On stage they are unpredictable and unique, each performance becoming a true celebration and a family ritual.
