STRIDŽIE DNI (“THE WITCHING DAYS”) is a celebration of the countryside in Western Slovakia, with all its grotesque myths and lore. All lyrics are written in local dialect and they mostly deal with folklore legends based on rural witchcraft, drunkenness and also national pride. Like the Slovak soul itself, these songs are often both grim and humorous, merry and melancholic at the same time. Recorded during 2014-2015. MALOKARPATAN on this recording are: Temnohor – throat As – 6 strings & backing throat HV – 4 strings & rhythmic beating All music and lyrics by As, except “O víne, kterak ucený Hugolín Gavlovic z Horovec vyprával” lyrics written by Hugolín Gavlovic in 1755.
