Telesma Concert - Winter Festival of Wonders
The Winter Festival of Wonders is a three day celebration of Wonder, Magic & Play, taking place at Area 405 in Baltimore, MD. The Gallery will house installations, sculpture and artworks, and feature four ticketed events.
Telesma's blurs the line between performer and audience, attracting the most creative VJs, dancers, visual artists and body artists to its shows. Every Telesma show is a vortex of creativity; a celebration of body, mind and spirit.
The Telesma experience is an ecstatic trans-cultural phenomenon with a highly infectious and danceable beat. Exploding on the Baltimore music scene in 2002, it soon developed a loyal local fan base and then shook the underground festival scene from coast to coast. Alex Grey, the noted visionary artist, hailed Telesma as "shamanic with a sense of an underlying universal wisdoma rare combination in a rock/techno band."
The didgeridoo and manDrum too. Telesma's vast arsenal of musical finery includes instruments as divergent as the didgeridoo, kubing (bamboo mouth harp from the Philippines), to electronic and tribal drums and the manDrum, one of the inventions of Telesma's guitarist, as well as bass, keyboards, drum kit and the human voice.
Hard to describe. Dancing is mandatory. Telesma's sound has been sometimes described as "psychedelic tribal modern world dance music", with diverse sounds ranging from intense polyrhythmic rock to the trance-like pulses of modern electronic dance/groove music.
"To experience Telesma live is to become part of the show. More than just music, it's a swirling, whirling, twirling eventit's extremely hard not to become involved in the swaying, hypnotic rhythms that pour forth from the stage." Michael Macey of the Chesapeake Music Guide
