Originally released on cassette exactly one year ago, now remastered for vinyl, D.K expresses his imaginary interpretation of the music used in Vietnam’s ancestral/spiritual possession rituals called 'Hau Dong'.
It’s a ceremony in 5 parts, whereby spirit mediums dance on each song to honour the mystical goddesses of Forest, Water and Heaven.
Whilst dancing during these rituals, the Medium's appear to transform themselves into different characters - changing their personalities, as if various spirits have entered their bodies.
Pop it on, light some incense and see which spirits you can summon.
