BAST - Bast
music, pop, dance, electronic music, influences of jazz and traditional
Balkan melodics all that has met in the melting pot that after
intense and long lasting stirring gave birth to BAST project an
album that elegantly weaves all these multicultural music elements and
forms a coherent whole. The history of modern music is the history of
fusions and reformations. Jazz, rock, techno, hip-hop and other pop music
genres were formed in that fashion the fashion of melting pot.
The results are different but the methods are similar. BAST is an album
of contrasts that ignore the genre and cultural boundaries. It is not
a coincidence that the project came to existence in Slovenia, which is
the traditional crossing of Slavic, Germanic and Romanic cultures, new
and old. The BAST Project was named after the Egyptian goddess of pleasure,
presented by a cat shaped totem. During the celebrations in her honor
that took place in city of Bubastis, people sailed towards her totem,
drumming and singing loudly.
