Teao “Teao Sense” Thompson spent his teen years in the San Francisco Bay Area during the nineties, when underground hip hop was thriving. He could usually be found deejaying, making beats, playing an instrument, or freestyling in rap cyphers. By his early twenties, as a DJ, music producer and multi-instrumentalist, he had developed a worldly, urban, and unique sound to offer to the masses.
In 2002, he founded the international music/artist collective Audiopharmacy Prescriptions, which quickly became an international grassroots movement, studio space, and live band, all of which strive to raise consciousness and global awareness, while building communities through art and music.
Now, after working with many amazing artists and touring areas including Europe, Japan, Indonesia, Fiji, Solomon Islands, New Zealand, Samoa, Morocco, Oman, Cyprus, Nepal, Philippines, Bali, the UK, Canada, Brazil and more, Teao is currently finishing his multi-media “Audio Cinema” project called “Moment,” while also occupying the roles of US Music Ambassador, music producer, musical director for “Dancing Earth” Indigenous dance company, educator, multi-instrumentalist, video producer, husband and father of two children.
Teao was on Next Level Team Tanzania.
