Ritual / Ethno-Ambient
Record Label:

Second edition of Phurpa's 2014 release. Founded by Alexey Tegin, Phurpa creates meditative music with its roots in the ancient pre-Buddhist tradition BON. Their concerts resemble shamanic mysteria where sounds, singing and rhythms invoke trance-like state introducing the listeners into the realm of dead gods and the times of culture that is already gone. They use traditional instruments, alongside human bones found in Tibetan wastelands. They meditate and practise the way of singing called “rgyud-skad”. “Mantras of Bon” is an extraordinary release, even for such an extraordinary and unusual project such as Phurpa. More than 70 minutes of music divided into two parts. The first, featuring Alissa Nicolai on vocals, shows the band from a completely different angle; the other presents the most important and interesting sessions recorded over the past few years, with a recording from CTM festival. An excellent introduction to the world of Tibetan music filtered by contemporary reinterpretation, free from rigid rules. It may enchant both those looking for interesting sacral music and the ones searching for a new form of sonic statement. Ltd x 250 copies in a 6-panel ecopak with new silver print artwork.
