about

Mimika Orchestra's new album Divinities of the Earth and the Waters (PDV records) is finally out. Set in the mysterious world of the ancient Balkans, the album is a fusion of progressive and orchestral music, old Slavic and South Slavic / x-Yugoslav / Balkan folk music and contemporary jazz. It follows a story of a protagonist who sees himself as an effigy in a folk festival, finishing with the burning of the doll, i.e. metaphorically seeing the burning as a funeral for himself and for his society. It is a psychedelic / dreamy album dedicated to the late Oberon King (who was Mimika's previous drummer), to the Yugoslav identity and exposing the richness of Slavic folk music and rhythms as inspirations.
