One of Poland's most astounding musical collectives, Atman have spent nearly two decades quietly releasing tapes on their own FLY (Freak Living Yourself) Music label between conducting workshops in instrument building and forestry. As you might expect, Atman's "forest music"—created with Tibetan liturgical instruments and acoustic instruments such as guitar, dulcimer and indigenous lutes—is the most masterful swirling paleo-delic ethno-folk hybrid in existence. Tradition features guest vocalist and long time collaborator ANNA NACHER, joining the core members of the group MAREK STYCZYNSKI, MAREK LESZCZYNSKI, and PIOTR KOELCKI, all multi-instrumentalists bringing life to a range of implements (from Slovakian pastoral fujara to baby rattles and zithers). Atman have expanded even further to include THOMASZ RADZIUK (bass guitar), TOMEK GULINSKI (vocals, harmonium, hand drums) and many other guests throughout the 65 minutes. Tradition ranges from green-blood-culling, acoustic dulcimer forest magic to blinding moves through rock territory, most brilliantly illustrated on a cover of HENDRIX's "Third Stone From The Sun," all capped off by the wailing punctuation of Anna Nacher (who sounds like Liz Frazier and Patti Smith rolled into an Eastern European forest mother).
