Two years ago we introudce Ukrainian band Garamrdah Fungus, lead by musician Igor Yalivec. One year after Fairytales, they’re back with a new album. Crossing The Wasteland is out now. It is inspired by Thar Desert, a large, arid region in the northwestern part of the Indian subcontinent that forms a natural boundary between India and Pakistan.
Their words about it: “This album is our vision of modern and sacral Asian culture – rich, mysterious and insufficiently explored. And this is probably our most minimalistic album to date. We deliberately refused the multiple layers of sound forms and methods that were used on previous records. We wanted to concentrate on sound repetitions and pauses, like in Indian mantras and folk music, trying to achieve a deep trance with minimal arsenal – only guitar, modular synthesizer and tanpura.”
