Divinities of the Earth and the Waters

Double LP + CD Album, 2018 PDV Records, Zagreb, Croatia

Mimika Orchestra’s album Divinities of the Earth and the Waters was released on May 25th, 2018 for PDV Records in Croatia. Set in the mysterious world of the ancient Balkans, the album is a fusion of progressive and orchestral music, old Slavic and South Slavic/ex-Yugoslav/Balkan folk music and contemporary jazz. It follows a story of a protagonist who sees himself as an effigy in a folk festival, finishing with the burning of the doll, i.e. metaphorically seeing the burning as a funeral for himself and for his society. It is a psychedelic/dreamy album dedicated to the late Oberon King (who was Mimika’s previous drummer), to the Yugoslav identity and exposing the richness of Slavic folk music and rhythms as inspirations.
