Red Sun Rising aka Michał Niecikowski is back on Altar with an unique psychill EP, expertly crafted with traditional folk chants and hurdy gurdy sound by Olica aka Aleksandra Suchowiecka.

Polish traditional music originates from pagan times and is characterized by a rural origin, from a simple people and a memory transmission. It refers to the old Slavic rituals and traditions associated with the annual nature cycle and the human life cycle. It connects to them organically. In this music, singing plays an important role, as well as an open, penetrating, intense and clear voice. People also used instruments such as violin, drums, hurdy-gurdy, flute and bass. In Polish archaic music, there are a lot of elements that can be found in contemporary, experimental and electronic music - repeatability, minimal formal means, return to a single sound, reference to the surrounding nature sounds and trance.

This EP testifies to the fact that the history of music has come full circle and the old one perfectly complements the new ones !
