DRUMMINGCELLIST: ZABUČALE GORE / THE MOUNTAINS ROARED
Zabučale gore / The Mountains Roared is the result of exploring Slovenian folk music and mythology and a deep-dive into the question of Slovenian identity.
Kristijan Krajnčan takes a nostalgic path down the memory lane of family musical tradition, yet always includes in his compositions everything he deems to be of interest to him: the raspy voices from more than hundred-years-old recordings on wax cylinders, untempered quarter-tone intervals, stories hidden in lyrics, mystical customs of Slovenian pagans … The original melody is left intact in some pieces, while elsewhere all that remained was the atmosphere emanating from the song’s essence.
