The Seshen

The Seshen is a San Francisco Bay Area-based six-piece band led by singer/lyricist Lalin St. Juste and bassist/producer Akiyoshi Ehara. Their forward-thinking sound combines synthesizers, drum machines, and live percussion to create an unmistakable fusion of R&B, synth-pop, and electronic music. St. Juste and Ehara are joined by four remarkable bandmates to create their multidimensional music: drummer Chris Thalmann, keyboard/synth player Mahesh Rao, percussionist Mirza Kopelman, and sampler Kumar Butler. They take inspiration from across the musical spectrum; their individual influences range from recognizable artists (Erykah Badu, Jai Paul, James Blake, Radiohead, and Broadcast) to genres and eras that don’t initially appear to fit together (hip hop, indie rock, early electronica, and 70’s dub). Their unique alchemy of seemingly disparate sounds has led fans and critics alike to describe the band as defying categorization.



Meet Mungo, a true artistic chameleon whose boundless creativity knows no bounds. With a passion for dance, a talent for art and design, and a knack for making music, Mungo is a versatile artist who defies categorization. He is a true polymath, and he proudly describes himself as protean, constantly shape-shifting his creative expression to explore new horizons. Mungo’s musical journey is a fusion of his Malawian roots and the soulful rhythms that have inspired him throughout his life. Drawing from the cultural tapestry of his upbringing, he weaves a unique sound that resonates with authenticity and emotional depth. His music serves as a bridge between contemporary R&B and the traditional African influences that have shaped his identity. With soulful vocals and captivating dance moves, he’s gaining recognition in Boise’s music scene. He is set to release an EP titled, “WISHES” on February 6th, in which he explores humanity and our attachment to hopes and dreams. His heartfelt music and engaging performances promise to leave a lasting impact as he continues to rise as an artist to watch.

The next big anticipated step for the artist is releasing his second album that he has been working on for the past year. He has been working with multiple people in Boise among which are Brenda Francis, Andrew Shepherd, Alex Gamble and others to bring this album to life. With the help of the band that comprises Justin Tam, Scott Eisele, Tessa Ritchey and Aaron Bell, the album is set to share Mungo’s authenticity and vulnerability more anything he has shared before.
