About Jung Turks

From their MySpacepage:

Jung Turks are James P. Rooney (drums, percussion, mandala) and Edward D. Rooney (baritone nylon string guitar*). They play what is known as Ój?ipha - this musical form is based on the belief that the artist is a channel through which the infinite reveals. Through study of Ój?ipha masters from Duluth, Calw, Paola, Algeciras, Jajouka, Belfast and Aracataca the brothers' pallette has developed and musical boundaries diminished.

Since their inception in the spring of 2005 they have performed to audiences across Ireland, on occasion in the company of such subterranean heroes as The Redneck Manifesto, giveamanakick, The Jimmy Cake, The Dublin Guitar Quartet, Ten Past Seven, Blood On The Wall, Larrikin Love and Orson. 2007 will bring further touring under the guidance of Consul Pedro, with recording of their debut album planned for the summer.

*The guitar is a custom Turner Renaissance RN6HB made by internationally renowned luthier and electronics designer Rick Turner.
