Shpongle (DJ SET)
Simon Posford and Raja Ram are ‘SHPONGLE’. A new world of traditional sounds, acoustic
guitars, Moroccan drums, Turkish operatic singing, cello, double bass, backing vocals and silver
flute blended together with the computer wizardry of Simon Posford’s studio production. With the
release of their second album, ‘Tales of the Inexpressible’ and its further explorations into diverse
sound production they are ready to unleash the multiversity that is ‘SHPONGLE’ on a host of
international tour destinations including a 16 party series in Brazil as well as tours through Japan.
Zebbler’s visual performances have a genuinely live feel using heavy visual processing to latch
on to the musical rhythms and emotions on the fly. The resulting visual tapestry is always in sync
with the music and brilliant to the eye.
Telesma create an immersive experience of hypnotic rhythms. Their unique sound is driven by
the ancient didgeridoo, the kubing, and tribal percussion. Telesma’s inspirational message delves
into themes of higher consciousness, philosophy, connectivity and peace.
