The title track SENKYA PADNA contains a sample of an elderly woman singing an archaic traditional folklore song "A shade casts its shadow on three cities”. Written during the pandemic, it immediately sets the tone of the album - rather dark, more aggressive, and dissonant at times.
With their sixth album, the band continues to explore their fascination with Bulgarian folklore and contemporary jazz, which makes this album quite dynamic, with its rich sound pallet and playful interactions.
