About this album

The cult British band Fun-Da-Mental, Zulu Choir The Mighty Zulu Nation, Indian sarod performer Rampur Rani, unique Afro-French singer Julien Jacob, and other great musicians took part in recording of “Oikoumene”.

The musicians recorded the tracks in different cities and at several studios: in St. Petersburg (“House of 100 sounds,” “Dobrolet”), England (PMA Basement Studios, Huddersfeild and Unit 13, London) and Paris (Passage A Niveaux).

The CD art design was created by famous Russian artist Boris Indrikov.

“It was interesting to give up all the electronics and the tricks, and work with live material. Whole year of hard work, and what a great experience! And the cooperation with so many, really talented, musicians from all over the world still feeds me with special energy. In the beginning, of course, there were many doubts, but now I can say that everything has turned out well. And this is the best of what we have done for all time, that’s for sure! “- says the frontman of the band Fedor Svolotch.

While recording the album Theodor Bastard used an impressive collection of various instruments which were brought from distant journeys. In some songs you can hear such instruments as daf, doira, dumbek, udo, kalimba, reko-reko, Kaxix, Ashik, talking drum and variety of dzhambe and kongas. Yana Veva, songwriter and vocalist, played the Chinese flute Bawuah. Rampur Rani performed on sarod - Indian national instrument. Dmitry Gorenko played the didgeridoo.
