The two artists which make up this ethno-ambient duo have been present on the Polish folk scene for many years. Their joint project draws on the tradition of medicine women – whisperers and folk magic, using stories recovered from counting rhymes, texts for the Kupala Night, magical sentences and descriptions of things one does not speak of during the day. Their lyrics are largely based on the compilations by Oskar Kolberg and ethnographic studies dedicated to superstitions, demonology and folk magical practices. These sources have inspired the duo’s compelling musical explorations. The looped sounds of złóbcoki, kankles, wolf bass, Asian kashgar and shamanic drum provide the backdrop to acoustic folk instruments, spindles, whispers, shouts and songs that take the listeners into the mysterious realm of homespun magic.
