Have you ever heard the word Neoteric before?
Do you know its meaning?
What do you think it is?
Neo is the easy part. Certainly, it means new. And what is “-teric’’? The Ancient Greek suffix -τερος is an equivalent of the English “-er’ or “-est”. For example, ἐσωτερικός (esō-terikós, esoteric) loosely means “deeper, deepest”. So Neoteric means newer, newest, or just recent, fresh, young.
The word Neoteric is rather rare. It is ancient and precious. It has existed in English since the late 16th century, but was preceded by older synonyms such as just “modern”, which came to English earlier. So this word is old and new. Its own destiny showcases the dialectic of the Old and the New, the mystery of centuries that stand in front of each other, exchanging secrets, recipes and spells.
In Ancient Rome, there were poets who called themselves Neoteric. Among them were the legendary Vergilius and Catullus, whose lyrics still rock. These masters defied the mainstream of their generation with intricate craftsmanship, playfulness, freedom, and experiment. But here is one more thing: these poets themselves were part of a bigger continuity. They encapsulated an awesome tradition, mystical, and mysterious. THE TRADITION OF BEING NEW!
Over millennia, many other artists, collectives, communities, movements, carried, cherished, nurtured this tradition. Even if they did not actually brand themselves “Neoteric”, this is what they were. And so is JetLAG. And this is what makes JetLAG always unique and continuously relevant: the harmony of heritage and innovation, of reminiscence and foresight. It bridges the known and the freshly-discovered. We don't merely hold onto traditions; we evolve them. We recognize the allure of reinvention and passionately delve into the art of starting anew.

Giving Back: Good Music for Good Causes
In 2022/2023 we raised around $45,000 for organizations helping people impacted by
the war in Ukraine: half of the money came from donations and merchandise sales,
the other half from ticket sale revenue. Let’s make it a tradition. An option to
donate to Good Music for Good Causes is added to each ticket purchase. The
recipients of the money raised will once again be causes and aid groups organized by
and related to our JetLAG community. Our primary focus is to raise money for
humanitarian efforts in Ukraine including medical aid and education, immigration and
migration support, transportation, evacuations, clean water, and food delivery. Part of
the funds will be dedicated in memory of Dina Vistman, who cared deeply and worked
hard for the missions close to her heart and ours: Ukraine, reforestation in the
Amazon, neuro-oncology research, and clean oceans.
