Berlin based free improvising band between 1997 and 2007.

The name is taken from the second track "Ghetto Raga" on the first 1969 album by british THIRD EAR BAND "Alchemy" and also is program:
Instruments usually played in classical music playing free improvisations fenced in by simple and monotonous hand drum rhythms - usually just one ongoing hypnotic rhythm per piece.
Glen Sweeney, mastermind and drummer of TEB, later called their pieces "electric ragas".
All tracks private and unreleased recordings by Thomas.
