About this album

RADA & TERNOVNIK (Rada & The Blackthorn) INCANTATIONS (2006)
CD - Vyrgorod (Russia), AtomCat (Ukraine)

‘Incantations’ is a difficult studio opus (the recording took nearly a year), appealing to the archaic stratum of human consciousness, belonging to the times when people were not divided by various countries, languages and religions. The songs dwell upon senses and sensations common to all of us - upon love, death, pain, pleasure. That is why the songs combine various musical instruments of different cultures: Tibetan ritual trumpet, Australian didgeridoo, South Indian kanjira, Russian wind instruments - ‘rozhok’, ‘kalyuka’ and other folk pipes and trumpets, sax, flute, bass guitar, rock drums. A didgeridoo calls with a sax, undertone singing intertwine with a Russian horn, and a Tibetan bone pipe moans in a Russian folk song. This is an exploration of mystic undercurrents of old Russian folk chants, on which the songs are based. But the lyrics are contemporary, written by Rada, the lead singer. The vocalist and bandleader Rada, author of all the songs, is a leading performer of a Russian indie-scene since 1991. She is distinguished by unusually powerful and clear voice and the deep lyricism of her poetry. After many experiments with trip-hop sound, dark folk and neoclassical albums, using exotic instrumentation (indian folk instruments et al), “Rada & Ternovnik” arrived at a unique synthesis of archaic world traditions and the modern post-rock sound.
