:: PRESS RELEASE ::
The duo ELEA is pleased to present their 6th album, « Oniros ». A journey to the heart of Ethno-Ambient, deep and mystical…
About the album:
Journey to the heart of Ethno-Ambient, deep and mystical, “Oniros” has matured through years of work and creative introspection.
This new ELEA duo album reflects a period in life made of strong and enriching experiences, during which the artistic expression of Swann and Ely, and the precision work on arrangements, bring to fruition tracks charged with strength and meaning.
The power of the album lies notably in the use of multiple sacred and shamanic instruments played live, with a large measure of improvisation. Several pieces also contain mantra chants. Included as well in the recording of the album are certain of their musician friends (Hideyo Blackmoon, Ismaël Diallo, Trio Zephyr, Amu Ahava and Sangit Sirus).
“Oniros” is a rich, spellbinding album. It tells the story of the duo in a manner at once ecstatic, symbolic, almost supernatural, and always luminous.
