A hurdy-gurdy, a calabash drum, a guitar, and a voice!
Inspired by an original idea from percussionist Marc Glomeau, French band Hypnotic Wheels brings together three musicians and instruments which have never been associated before: a hurdy-gurdy, a calabash drum, and a guitar.
Hypnotic Wheels creates a singular universe mixing Mississippi blues, Central France music, pop, trance, and electro, uniting elements from electronic and folk music. Its obsessive, mystical and enigmatic sound, like a perpetual trance –hence the name– sets a mesmerizing background for Tia’s magnetic voice.
The trio along with sound engineer Pierre Bianchi have been acclaimed at their first major show at the 7 Nights to the Blues festival in Northern France in 2013 and on all the stages they have performed since.
