The Band

Righsing, (pronounced rising) is a band from Berlin, Germany that has been making music since 2008. Their music is an eclectic mix of different genres and styles.  The four members come from different musical backgrounds and create a new sound they call Rockadelic Tillibilli.


Mariko Pentagram, has been singing all her life. Growing up in a musical family, she sang in different children’s choirs, madrigal groups and with multiple bands over the years.  Righsing is her first time as frontwoman, she dances around the stage with ease and authenticity and has an energy that pulls the audience in with the first lines of her intense self-written lyrics.  The lyrics are a mix of silly love songs and serious spiritual messages, each song having its own feeling and that specific Rockadelic Tillibillii sound and atmosphere that Righsing has developed.


Julius-k is an all around musician playing the guitar for Righsing with a masterful passion.  His use of different guitar effects brings psychedelic layers and unexpected moments to the music.  Coming mostly from a background with jam bands, Julius-k brings a touch of wildness and rawness to Righsing’s sound. He played for many years with Zone Six and Südstern 44, produced by Nasoni Records.


Jörg Lemkuhl is a visual artist who decided one day to play the electric bass.  His style of bass playing is fun and uplifting, bringing a lightheartedness to the music.  He also creates the visual aspect of Righsing’s stage show with his colorful video art projections.


S. Abul Rödl has been in the medieval music scene for over 20 years, playing different types of traditional drums and beats.  For 12 years he has drummed for the medieval band Varius Coloribus Expierence. For Righsing he plays the drum kit.  His rhythms are complex and driving and make people want to move and dance.
