Meet the new album of the band Yat-Kha!!!


Good news for the band's fans - a long-awaited new record has been released!!! The new album is available on all streaming platforms. The distribution of physical media (CDs and vinyl) is handled by the German label Lollipoppe Shoppe.


A little bit from Albert Kuvezin about the new record:


"Sholban Mongush and I started recording our new album in Scheer, Southern Germany, after a European tour in 2019. It is a former industrial complex in a beautiful location right on the banks of the Danube, not far from where the river begins. Studio "Faust" is run by Joachim from the German cult group "Faust". We spent a few days there and recorded five songs.


Due to the coronavirus pandemic, all of our concerts, festivals, and tours were canceled, and in the spring of 2020, we were all quarantined. I decided not to waste time and recorded more tracks, just overdubbing the instruments myself. In March, we will go on a tour of Russia and see how our new material works with the full band.


I have always been interested in shamanic mythology and poetry, especially Tuvan. I really appreciate and respect Mongush Borakhoevich Kenin-Lopsan for his great work and years of research and preservation of Tuvan shamanism. I took the lyrics of the song "Sharilaam and we will never die" from his book about Tuvan shamans.


Along with Tuvan traditional music and nature, poetry is my other inspiration. Russian Russian poet Osip Mandelstam, who is one of the main figures of what we call the Russian "Poetry of the Silver Age", wrote a song a few years ago based on the poems of the great Russian poet Osip Mandelstam. The repression is one of the many tragedies of the Soviet Union in the 20th century, and Mandelstam died in the Gulag camp in Vladivostok in 1938. 2021-1 30th birthday of Mandelstam.


I would like to mention another song On the Way (to the Eternal Tengri/ On the Path), which I wrote in 1989 in Sverdlovsk (now Yekaterinburg again). At that time, I was interested in Eastern philosophy and esotericism. I was young and my lyrics were so naive, but I genuinely felt the loss of my relatives and friends and believed in eternity and the other world.


In addition to writing songs, I like to play the guitar and sometimes come up with musical compositions such as "Ak-Oruk"("White Road"). In Tuvan traditions, "White Road" is a greeting and means a good open road or path. Let me wish all of you, friends and fans, journalists and music people of Ak-Oruk for your life!"
