‘Kodama are the spirits that, according to Japanese folklore (and the Greek tradition, as Dryads), inhabit a number of old trees in the forest. These trees are said to possess supernatural powers, they are often protected and there is mystery surrounding them to this day. When they are cut, their painful cries can be heard across the forest.This album is a reflection on our relationship with the natural world, our Spirit and our ability to let go, with tracks such as ‘Father’, ‘Mother’ and ‘Limitless’ being some of the most personal works I have written to date.’
You can listen tracks from Kodama on this playlist
I am very grateful that NachtEin.TagAus has decided to release this track I did some months ago. Thank you Gabriel Toso for providing the starting point and inspiration for it and also to our beloved Huni Kuin shaman Ninawá, whose voice also appears briefly in the track. Bless you Owen Pratt for the recording at Flesh & Bone Studios. You can listen Desert Whistler on Soundcloud

The upcoming VVerses, bosses of the mighty Chapter 24 Records will also be debuting, whose cosmic-tribal-tech sounds could not fit better our party spirit! Our brotherz Tom & Jarrod will initiate the magic whereas I will close the night in a traditional Loko manner.
