Idumea from Idaho Eastern Twin Falls

Artist History

Idumea is the result of a fusion of cultures.  Kent Jensen has adopted Latin American culture as his own, combining with Ana Boyd and Emilia Jensen, who bring their Costa Rican heritage into this harmonic blend.  The result is an insightful mix of rock, Latin, and folk musical genres.  Lyrical ballards are partnered with edgy rock and roll.  The melody and rhythms catch the ear and the lyrics stir the soul. 


The groups talents are as diverse as the music. Kent Jensen and Emilia Jensen pen the group's songs. Kent leads the way with vocals, guitar, as well as keyboards. Kent Jensen has performed in Costa Rica and locally. Ana Boyd gives the music a unique flare with work on viola, keyboards and vocals. She graduated with a performance degree from Boise State and performs frequently with Opera Idaho. She also performed with the Moody Blues, when this classic rock act played in Boise. Jeff Ringle, an excellent percussionist, Marci Ridley, on keyboards and Nat Parrish on bass, round out the group.


We have performed from Las Vegas to Hollywood and some other places in between.  We have appeared on the cd compilation for the December 2006, June, and November/December 2007 issues of Global Rhythm Magazine.  This has been a great honor as it has allowed us to share cd space with such artists as Tina Turner, Thomas Mapfumo, and Manu Chao.


Although we're not ready to quit our jobs, we love what we do. We hope the music gives you food for thought, and hey, we'll go anywhere, anytime to share our music with you.

"Little Boy Blue" by Idumea (World Artist from Idaho(ID))
POSTED BY: momof5pacs POSTED ON: 08 Apr 2009 04:56 PM

RadioIndy is pleased to present Idumea with a GrIndie Award for the CD "Little Boy Blue"

Idumea's “Little Boy Blue” is ideal mood Latin music with complementing styles of rock, folk, and well balanced with a fusion of styles. Delicate and tender, the vocals are delivered with relaxed ease while the moving lyrics have a story to tell. Distinctive Latin rhythms splashed with calming melodies flow from song to song. The titled track “Little Boy Blue” is a folk song arranged with the tone of a nursery rhyme featuring sweet and thoughtful lyrics while layered with acoustic guitar and subtle soft strings. The alluring guitar showcases Latin fusion influences in “Danza Del Sol” with subdued synth sounds and rich and solid percussion. This group has developed an album filled with an assortment of arrangements alternating from track to track which gives the listener a pleasurable and unique musical experience. “Little Boy Blue” is an exquisite, relaxing production with the ambiance of Latin flair and hints of folk and rock styles.
