* Composition Use for Dance Performances
Tuatha is pleased to be part of the dance community, and love to support and participate with this community. Part of this support is in making our music available for performances. To that end, we have defined a policy for use of our compositions.
The following constitutes Tuatha's permission for use of Tuatha compositions. The provisions apply in their entirety and cannot be applied separately. Anything beyond these provisions is not permitted without formal approval of Tuatha. Please, contact us with any questions or if you are looking to use our music otherwise. We are open to a lot of things.
- Tuatha provides express permission to use our recordings for public dance performances for free.
- Credit must be given to Tuatha, the composition, and that it is copyrighted in any printed material.
- Tuatha would greatly appreciate a best effort in getting credit to Tuatha and the composition in the announcement of the performance.
- Any formal video of the performance to be made available for free or for a fee should include credit to Tuatha, the composition, and that it is copyrighted where the performance information is displayed or printed.
Dance your hearts out. It is an honor and a pleasure to be part of such a beautiful and vibrant community.
We would love it if you let us know when you use our music. And if there are any professional or amateur video, please point us to it. It would be fun to see our music in motion.
* Thank you, Scoz
For the last year we have had the pleasure of having Scoz take on one of our drummer spots.
It has been a growth experience for us. His kit-based drumming has opened up some new directions in our music allowing us to explore different dynamics in our music. We love all that he has added to our music style and our individual compositions.
We are sad to see him leave as he focuses on his previous project.
We wish you well, Scoz, and will be playing with you soon in joint shows.
* Welcome Mateo As Our Newest Member
We want to welcome Mateo as our newest drummer to complement Logran in our double drummer style. You may have seen him before as he has been to almost all of our shows and has been taking very good care of us. Mateo has been our sound engineer of choice for our shows. We have even hired him when there was already a sound engineer for the venue. He knows our complex sound engineering needs and has done an excellent job of doing our live sound. That also means he knows our music. We have loved working with him all these years. So, he is a perfect choice for our next incarnation of Tuatha.
* Working on a New Album
As soon as Mateo is up to speed on certain compositions, we will be recording for a new album. We do not have an exact time but hope to have it out this Spring.
Blending the musical and the mystical
Tuatha plays a psychedelic collage of trance dance, world groove, and tribal fusion rock that transports the listener on a visually evocative musical pilgrimage to indigenous lands, shamanic visions, and the realms of the spirits. All original compositions on an electro-acoustic blend of violin, flute, vocals, drums, and percussion inspired by African, Middle Eastern, Indian, Eastern European and Gypsy sounds, mixed together to energize your spirit, move your body, spark your imagination, and elevate your soul.
"Most interesting and impressive was the atmosphere Tuatha conjured up on that stage... They changed the very air in Hodi's for their 30-minute set with their music... One could recall the influence of Caribbean nights, maritime passages, and various Venetian gypsy markets all packed in a short 30 minutes." - Chris Galis, Scene Magazine
