Bosnian Rainbows is an American alternative rock band from El Paso, Texas, formed in 2012. The band consists of The Mars Volta members, Omar Rodriguez Lopez (guitar, backing vocals, keys) and Deantoni Parks (drums, keys), alongside the enigmatic Le Butcherettes vocalist Teri Gender Bender (vocals) and Nicci Kasper (keyboards, synths). Initially billed as a variation on the Omar Rodriguez Lopez Group, the band was formed following a decision to put Rodriguez Lopez and Parks’ primary project, The Mars Volta, into a hiatus. Regarding the band’s conception, Rodriguez Lopez noted, “I found myself lonely and bored. So it’s like, ‘OK, new phase, let’s get into it and let’s create a dialogue. Let’s find some things out.’”
