The spirit of the moon captures early and late medieval music
with a sound, rooted in the Slavic tradition combined with elements
of minimalism and vocal experiments of the 20th Century. The alchemy
of these constituent parts results in a breathtaking original
music, both delicate and sinister. The surreal fairy tale inspired lyrics
add to the inherent beauty, sadness and madness within. Their
songs display an intense and profane spiritualism and are as such the
perfect antitode to these consumerist and superfluous times.
