about

released as 3"cdr by taâlem.

the tracks for "famadihana" were recorded after finishing the "dni stratili svoju farbu" cd (hibernate, march 2011) with aim to create quite minimal guitar drones.
"famadihana" refers to a funeray tradition of the malagasy people in madagascar known as "the turning of the bones", people bring forth the bodies of their ancestors from the family crypts and rewrap them in fresh cloth, then dance with the corpses around the tomb to live music.
