ŽAGAR

“Spirits are not otherworldly ghosts from the distance but are the very nature of the forest. Trees have music in them, mushrooms are alive and singing – We have learned our songs from them.”

After being played on radios since ages, renowned Hungarian electro-acoustic band Žagar took a sharp turn into a new dimension: after picking up inspiration on trips throughout Asia and Africa, Balázs Zságer broadened his musical horizons finding balance between nature, spirituality and oriental soundscapes with ‘Woods, Spirits & Sorcery’ being the result. The album is nowhere near their previous musical territory, leaning towards psychedelic-atmospheric soundscapes like never before.
