Just released recently (July 17) – here comes another amazing album from Croatian band nemanja, this time spectacular cosmic disco cumbia inspired by the ancient text “Tibetan Book of the Dead”!
Here’s more about it from their bandcamp page:
After “Tarot Funk” captured his inner world through 2018. nemanja asks you to follow him through his next faze – his death, inner search and new birth.
“Cosmic Disco” has been written as the musical answer to the Book of the Dead. It describes, and guides, through the experiences that occur after death, in the bardo, the interval between death and the next rebirth. Because the experience might be terrifying, “Cosmic Disco” comes as a celebration of life and all the beauty and joy we found and have yet to discover in the next life.
The album doesn’t answer the questions about death, it only tells what nemanja remembers. He is hoping that you will, while listening, remember your transition too – your time of spiritual change and transformation. After all, you too had “died” and come back many times before. You just need to remember.
“Cosmic Disco” follows three bardo intervals – Chikhai bardo in which one sees the reality in its clearest form, Chonyid bardo which features the experience of visions while the last Sidpa bardo features karmically impelled hallucinations which eventually result in rebirth.
If once again, for some reason, you are not successful in finding meaning in all of this, just let the grooves free your ass and your mind will follow! I wish you all a pleasant journey!
