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.
