On Tuesday Sept. 27, WTMD hosted Dan Deacon, Shodekeh, Wendel Patrick, Melissa Wimbish, Edwin Perez, Brooks Long, and others for Embody, a celebration of the human voice.

There is no other show in Baltimore like Embody. It strips away other instruments to push the boundaries of the human voice.

In the past, performers have incorporated opera, beatboxing, throat singing, whistling and human trumpet – solo and as part of a larger group – into their sets. The fourth wall between the audience and the musicians frequently comes down, with vocalists in the audience often joining performers on stage.

Hosted by vocal artist Shodekeh and WTMD’s Sam Sessa, this installment of Embody also featured Chuck the Mad Ox DJing and beatboxing between sets.
