Dear friends, we're excited to let you know that we recently started a new project. Nadishana and David Kuckhermann decided to join forces and have been working on a new program. Recently they were on tour in Germany and Russia and here is the result: the new live album of the duo, "Live at the Moscow Hang festival". It's available as DVD, CD or MP3 download from Bandcamp.
1) More good music for less money! A special Xmas offer for the CDs is running up now: You get 7 CDs pack for the price of six so you get one CD for free! Pack includes Nadishana Trio latest CD and Asymmetric Beauty CD http://shop.nadishana.com/pack
Important: We want to thank all of you, who has supported us and purchased the debut CD of Nadishana Trio! We are really positively surprised and touched by your enthusiasm, because at this era of free downloads to buy a "real" CD means to make something rather exotic. Thank you for making this peculiar choice, we really appreciate it. We have about one CD order a day and actually physical CDs are more demanded then downloads. That’s very important for us, because what we trying to do is to create a complete universe where graphic design also plays an important role together with the music to deliver the “message”. This album is completely independent production and it takes about 1,5 year of dedicated intense work to produce the CD like that. So thank you again for your great support, it is really needed here. Your enthusiasm keeps us going and opens new horizons!
2) Our designed futujara got better because of new vanishing technology we started to use. This vanishing technology not only gives the futujara a better look but also makes the painted surface more robust. More than that you can get it cheaper now because of Special Xmas offer for designed Futujaras. You get 10 EUR discount! It's a good chance to get a beautiful instrument as a present for yourself or for your friends for Xmas! http://shop.nadishana.com/ftdesigned

"On their first album together, the members of "Nadishana Trio" bring to the recording studio an original repertory that has been captivating audiences for more than four years of performances in prestigious venues and festivals. What has been forged through collective interactions, now becomes an original concept that captures the spirit of their fruitful kinship. Vladiswar Nadishana, the founder of the project, is a multidisciplinary Siberian artist with a deep knowledge of ethnomusicology, playing more than 100 instruments. He is joined by master percussionist Steve Shehan, a legendary world music innovator, member of the famous Hadouk Trio, and bass player Armin Metz, versed in different styles, from electronica, pop, to world fusion. The title of the album is a suggestive metaphor of their creative road map: "Far" is geographical distance, but also it is about traditions, a journey to an ancient time when music was evolving as a fundamental ingredient of human culture, while "Near" evokes spatial closeness, neighborhood, the fresh modernistic flavor intersected with its "Far" counterpart. The variety of the musical themes and instruments we hear is impressive. There are original compositions along with skilled solos contributed by all three multi --instrumentalists who distill and blend layers of "Far" and "Near" in a polychromatic panoply composed of a wide array of influences and sources. We are taken to explore a world of harmonies infused by a cross-cultural symbiosis that resonates with the innermost chords of the soul. Flowing happily like a mountain spring, the invigorating "Water song", opens the journey. As the musical flow progresses we pass through a mysterious "Hidden Door", reaching the "Vast lands" of the "Sanskar Valley", charmed by a mellow "Overtone story" , before "Riding north" surrounded by the dark melodious voice of the bass. Then comes the silky "Far and Near", a melody you wish it never ends, and the ritual-like "Kuzhebarsko Horo" reminiscent of ancestral East-European circle dances. The inspiration flies high when the adventure slows pace with the delicate oriental beauty of the "Urhat", in which Nadishana's sensuous kaval narrates an emotional intense melody. In tune with him, Armin Metz weaves rich bass tones, swirling like a snake made of velvet sounds, while sound wizard percussionist Steve Shehan radiates lights and shadows, whispers and silence, deepening the mystery. But "Far&Near" is also an enriching sonic experience for listeners, as the album showcases a rich variety of percussion , woodwind and chords instruments of different origins, some of them invented by the musicians themselves . It is a momentary return to the sources of music when the humanity was closer to the nature than today. At the end of this fabulous journey, the three fellow storytellers leave us enchanted by the pure joy they shared with passion and virtuosity all along the way. From every angle, "Far and Near" is a vivid illustration of Longfellow's words: "Music is the universal language of mankind." Stefan Bocioaca www.jazzworldquest.com
