Rock en español band. Great songs, explosive and soulful energy. TK are the initials of an arameic expresion \"Thalita Kumi\", which means \"Get up and walk\". Their musical proposal is developed in a conceptual layer that shows up in the lyrics as well as in their artistic and abstract work. All the bandmates are composers, which guarantees their reinvention along their career. They like to make people think, to transmit ideas and diverse sensations. They offer content besides music and they pursue that people perceive their art as a unit, that has sense, coherence, correspondance and cohesion.
