BAI TEREK - Spirit of Altay (Tpoποs records 2022)


The sound of national instruments of the Altai region will fascinate you with the aura of wild landscape and mountains. 

The Altai band ‘Bai Terek’ composed their most recent songs in the mountains, populated almost solely by shepherds. They conducted their album recording sessions at night, spending days dozing. The sounds of the steppe's – horses, wind, water – are a key part of their bizarre sonic compositions, all reproduced with their voices. 

You can see that the emphasis of their home landscape and way of living is clear in their music, clothing, and stories of the Siberian indigenous societies. Bai-Terek add to this the joyous passion of youth.
