Divinities of the Earth and the Waters
A musical story of death, love and struggle set in the preindustrial Balkans.
Narrative-wise, the album Divinities of the Earth and the Waters follows a psychedelic plot set on an imagined ancient Slavic festival in the preindustrial Balkans, aesthetically reminiscent of the late Sergei Parajanov. Dealing with the human condition, love, loss, myth and struggle, it exposes the protagonist’s life through his reality and imagined perception, from folk festivals in young adulthood to his own funeral ceremony.
Musically, it is an album full of orchestral twists, complex arrangements, lyrics in the old Kajkavian dialect, uneven measures, heavy grooves, solos, free improvisations.
