Kalki Avatara play a very interesting mix of ethnic music and experimental doom black. There is an almost mystic atmosphere here, this kind of tranquil atmosphere that can accompany yoga exercise (!) without being boring. The arrangements are really advanced and the whole result is original and captivating but too short in duration.
