A good listening experience warps one's sense of time.
— Ioš'te
Ioš'te is, by Stenza standards, a young man, being in his early forties and an up-and-comer as a Khe'drakha Performer. He is already noted for his airy, somewhat high-pitched voice and use of rhythm bones to keep time while in "official performance mode". Now, to that last point, it is exceptionally common for reciters to use the bones as a means of keeping time during practice, in order to get the structure of the poem just right and hit the ground running when, say, First Sunrise comes around. However, using the bones "on stage" is a lot rarer as a practice.    
It's a Khe'drakha, not chanting for dancers!
— Every old reciter Ioš'te comes into contact with

Mental characteristics


As with all Khe'drakha performers, Ioš'te has spent most of his life in intensive education in the history, myth, and religious lore of the Stenza, as well as the form of a proper Khe'drakha.  
When you know the rules, then you can break them.


Ioš'te is an up-and-comer in the field of Khe'drakha performance, and his habits involving the bones are a subject of discussion among his older peers. His most important asset, however, is a melodic and soothing, light-sounding voice that he has cultivated into lulling listeners into forgetting that time was passing.

Ooo I love the sound of him, and the fact that he uses rhythm bones in his performances. I bet that would be really nice to listen to. :D

It seems like a very soothing experience. (God I wish this was real :D )
