* www.telesmaband.com * Maryland * Performance at Faerieworlds 2010 on Saturday from 5:30-7 pm; 7/31/2010 *
A very intriguing American psychedelic electro-tribal rock band out of Maryland, Telesma pounded and tranced the fae on day 2 of Faerieworlds 2010. They played Faerieworlds in 2009 and came back for a repeat performance. Talesma brings together modern and tribal instrumentation with fusion of the primitive with the futuristic. Amazing drumming, primal beating, exotic music, and sensational dancing – Talesma blends the stage with the dancefloor. Didgeridoos, kubing, tribal drums, modern instruments, and mesmerizing vocals they create a indigenous form of polyrhyhmic rock and roll. Their lyrics has a mythological message. They have two full length albums “O(h)M” and “Hearing Visions: Live” that they produce on their independent lable “Strangely Compelling Music”. The bodypainted Ian Hesford (didgeridoo, kubing, dumbek, djun-djun, throat singing) stunned the stage; melded with the sounds of Jason Sage (keyboards, percussion, programmer, lyrics); Joanne Juskus (vocals, percussion, karatalas); Chris Mandra (guitar, analog guitar synth, his unique manDrum, and vocals); and Bryan Jones “Jonesy” (6 string MIDI & upright basses, theremin, percussion); Rob Houck (drum kit, percussion, electronic drums). Spiritual walkers between the worlds, these shamans know how to rock the worlds. Rating: 4.5 stars out of 5.
