The art magazine this is tomorrow described the performance of Lemsalu during her Estonian contribution to the 58th Venice Biennale in 2019 as follows: „Music has traditionally been used in rituals to negotiate relationships among self, society, and the cosmos. It can create a fleeting sense of community. The vocalist seems to have gone into a trance, guided by the hypnotic rhythm. She emits a loud bellow thrumming with an intensity that resonates through your stomach, trespassing the surface of your body and tingling your soul. A shaman turns around the fountain, touching the lumpy and shiny ceramics, which activates the water running from twleve vuvlas.“
