Performances on the Baliset by Ottawa/Gatineau musician Tom McMahon!

The Baliset is a Fictional instrument from the DUNE Universe!
From Wikipedia:
Baliset – "Nine-stringed musical instrument, lineal descendant of the zithra, tuned to the Chusuk scale and played by strumming. Favorite instrument of Imperial troubadours."[3] Gurney Halleck is a master at playing the baliset in the series.[4] In David Lynch's 1984 adaptation of Dune, a cosmetically altered Chapman Stick was used to portray the instrument.[9] In the miniseries Frank Herbert's Dune, the baliset resembles a renaissance-era lute, with the pegbox bent back almost 90°. A real-world version of the baliset has been created, divided into two sections, the treble played with the right hand, and the bass the left. Unlike a guitar, each hand can play either chords or separate notes.[10]

Elle Spina - s/t Canadian
Raised in Ottawa, Canada, Elle fell in love with music at a very young age. By age 9, she was teaching herself to play piano and guitar using online tutorials, dabbling in an eclectic range of genres, participating in her school's choir, recording YouTube covers, and playing concerts for her peers. Eventually, however, she came full-circle to the music she was raised on, R&B, ready to cultivate her own sound and her own message.To harness her uniqueness, she started producing her own music entirely, making herself a one-woman operation.

"90's R&B is where all of my most profound inspirations come from — artists like Aaliyah, Janet Jackson, Ashanti, Destiny's Child, and Mariah Carey — I can only hope to portray that in combination with a modern edge, successfully in my own sound. I decided the best possible way to make sure that my sound is my own, is by making myself accountable for the entire song-making process, from start to finish." Elle released her debut EP, "Better Off" in April 2020, setting the tone for the rest of her career.

Thank You!!
MaCMuwsA - s/t Canadian New
MaCMuwsA - s/t Canadian New
MaCMuwsA is a songwriter, producer, designer and entrepreneur. Born in Montreal and raised in North Miami, FL. I created this brand, HEAVY ZEB, in 2010 and have been growing it ever since. My goal is to move the culture forward and inspire other creatives with my artistry, independence and entrepreneurship. My most recent song “6PM IN OTTAWA” is a dedication to my new home and pays homage to Drake as the artist of the decade. It’s a conversation with my fans and describes what I’ve been up to and what my thoughts have been during my absence from music. I am humbled to have been a 2020 recipient of the Ottawa Music Industry Coalition’s Music Development Fund Grant. This led me to be chosen for a spot on Encore Season 2 on Rogers TV. My full concert + Interview will be airing on August 20th. What’s next in 2021? I have started my own production platform to help my peers create better records and bring more awareness about ownership in our culture. I also have plenty of new music to be released. In closing, I’d like to thank my business partner and Queen, MJ, for her endless support and dedication to the brand.
