An Introduction to Ored Recordings, Pt. 2: Dance

A 10 track field recordings album (37m 38s) — released March 24th 2017 on Death Is Not The End

Ored Recordings is an ethnographic record label based in the North Caucasus. Carrying no specialist training or experience in sound recording, the group of friends began travelling around the villages and towns of the Caucasus looking for the traditional music of the different peoples of the region. Since 2014, the label has released 14 digital releases featuring folk music of Circassians, Abkhazians, Pontic Greeks, Kalmyks and Chechens amongst others.

Ored Recordings isn't searching for a romanticised spirit of a 'fading tradition', nor trying to 'modernize' authentic material. On the contrary, the label records different forms of local folk music and supports local musical cultures. It pays as much attention to songs from the Soviet era as to archaic ritualistic music and religious melodies.

Death Is Not The End now present these two cassettes (Pt. 1, Song & Pt. 2, Dance), released in collaboration with Ored Recordings. We hope you like them.
