Tuatha Dea is deeply saddened to announce the departure of one of our founding members and daughter of Damasqhs, Tesea Dawson. Tesea has poured her heart and soul into the last 5 years of writing, recording, touring and general cat-herding that is the tribe of Tuatha Dea and she will be sorely missed!
But with every end must come a new beginning!
For 2015 and beyond, Tuatha Dea has decided to retire the monstrous African/Latin American “drum kit” that has accompanied them at nearly every show to date. This kit is made up of African djun djuns, djembes, Latin American bongos and timbales, cymbals, steel chimes, temple chimes and pure tribal spirit! As the kit that has provided Tuatha Dea’s signature sound for the past 5 years is retired, we are proud to welcome in its place a new family member! From Turin, Italy, we welcome Luca Caracciolo, AKA LC Hammer! LC brings with him tons of exceptional recording, performing and worldwide touring experience and is sure to help Tuatha Dea push it to the next level!
