"The name Teak was because we wanted a short word, that didn't put the band into any specific genre. Given we are a band of musicians who play the instruments without using computers, we felt the Teak being organic made sense. Isn't really that mysterious but it works for us. Teak play live reproducing the recorded sound without any computer add ons."
