about

(🇬🇧)
Eka Faune offers a surprising mix of Asian cultures, shamanism and post-punk in the form of a record called Healing of the Nation. The band merges dark mantras, hypnotic rhythms, ethnic samples and the acid sounds of Seika Faune. Delphine Poupard's voice and Robin Plastre's sax are added to produce a haunting music, dark and luminous at the same time, alternating dance and trance, taking the listener far inside... Similarly to the other albums by Eka Faune, Seika first recorded his drums and sounds machines as well as his sampler-sequencer in one take. Then he added the instruments and voices. Sax, bass, sarod, tambourine and vocals accompany loops captured on the streets of Delhi, the mountains of Asia or old acid house vinyls.

Eka Faune is a musical project based in Nantes, France, initiated in 2014 by the artist Guyseika. The project evolves under the influence of guitarists, cellists, singers or dancers who join the band for a concert, a recording, a tour - or more. Over the years, Amélie from Breedz Insane, Steph from Modules Étranges, Budwarrior or Vincent Roy, have taken part in the project. Recorded in 2021, the album Healing of the Nation is a deeply thought-out answer to the crisis we are all going through. It offers a way to heal from it: sounds coming straight out of a feverish cave located between the Himalayas and Detroit bewitch us into quite a trip.

Eka Faune propose avec Healing of the Nation une savoureuse rencontre entre cultures asiatiques, chamanisme et post-punk. Le groupe entremêle mantras ténébreux, rythmes hypnotiques, samples ethniques et sons acides de Seika Faune. S’y ajoutent la voix de Delphine Poupard et le saxo de Robin Plastre pour produire une musique obsédante, sombre et lumineuse à la fois, alternant danse et transe, propulsant l’auditeur loin à l’intérieur... Comme pour les autres albums d’Eka Faune, Seika a d’abord enregistré ses boîtes à sons et rythmes ainsi que son sampler-séquenceur d’un seul bloc, avant d’y ajouter les instruments et voix. Saxo, basse, sarod, tambourin et chant viennent accompagner des boucles capturées dans les rues des Delhi, les montagnes d’Asie ou encore sur de vieux vinyles d’acid house.

Eka Faune est un projet musical nantais, initié en 2014 par l’artiste Guyseika. Le projet évolue au contact des guitaristes, violoncellistes, chanteurs ou danseurs qui rejoignent la formation le temps d’un concert, d’un enregistrement, d’une tournée - ou plus. Au fil des années, Amélie de Breedz Insane, Steph des Modules Étranges, Budwarrior ou encore Vincent Roy, ont pris part au projet. Enregistré en 2021, l’album Healing of the Nation est une réponse longuement réfléchie à la crise que nous traversons. Il nous propose une voie de guérison : des sons tout droit sortis d’une fiévreuse grotte située entre l’Himalaya et Detroit nous invitent à planer dans un envoûtement général.
