Mergen 13

Debut Album
Released July 1, 2009

Why are we afraid of number 13? It is the number of moon cycle. Moon has a huge impact on whole humanity, whole nature. One actual month consists of 28 days. Divide 365 by 28 and you’ll get 13 months, which is a full year. And this album for me was like a Cycle, a part of my life I had to get through.

A 13-track album sung in Kazakh, that belongs to Turkic language group. It has impact of Arab, Persian, Mongol and Russian languages, still distinguished by it’s own sonic power.
