Light City 2016!!
April 6th, 2016
TELESMA is honored to have been a part of the premier of LIGHT CITY (Baltimore)!! This festival featured multi-media displays and installations of light, sound and music which swept across the entire Inner Harbor and literally lit up the night sky. TELESMA performed on the opening night and featured our visual mastermind John Suntiger throwing video projections behind the band during our set. We also had special guest bellydancer Leyla Fahada. Unfortunately, the wind kept us from having our 2 live painters onstage with us, but we were able to have body painter Patricia Tamariz paint Ian Hesford before the set. In case you missed it, we also got some great press from the event and we were featured in the SouthWest Airlines magazine for the month of March!
We’re very proud of our friends Brooke and Justin Allen who were the catalyst behind bringing this great idea to life here in Baltimore. The event was produced by the Baltimore Office of the Promotion of Arts.
Here is a little more about the event in their words…
“In 2016, Baltimore will host the first ever large-scale light festival in the United States. During the festival each year, we will transform the city with state-of-the-art light displays, video projections on buildings, dancing fountains, light sculptures, and interactive technologies to create
once-in-a-lifetime experiences for families, residents and visitors.
———- Music ———-
Light City will feature uniquely curated live music shows that will invite the world to experience one of America’s hottest music scenes.

Inspired by the success of South By Southwest, Light City will host an event ecosystem of conferences, forums, expos, and workshops to showcase Baltimore’s leading talent, attract thought leaders from around the world, and provide opportunities for education, networking and community engagement.”
