Romanesca (formerly known as Bokonon), the Denver-based seven-piece rock group, offers an original take on instrumental music by combining elements of rock, jazz, world, jam, metal, and electronic music, to create a complex landscape of post apocalyptic sound. Drawing from the influences of artists such as STS9, Tool, Radiohead, and Phish, Bokonon pushes the limits of progressive music with its eclectic sounds, intense arrangements, and mind-warping melodies.
