The Magic Carpathians Project has been active since 1998, established by Anna Nacher and Marek Styczyński (who previously had been a leader Theatre of Sound ATMAN). Influenced by musical traditions of Eastern and Central Europe (most notably the multicultural region of Carpathians mountains, spanning through Romania, Hungary, Ukraine, Poland and Slovakia), free jazz, the philosophy of sound of classical Indian music and contemporary classic the duo creates compositions based on improvisation using plethora of traditional instruments from Asia, Europa and Australia. Prepared electric guitar, home-made analog electronics, field recordings made during their numerous travels around the world and bastardised radio waves add up to the distinct atmosphere of their music.

Anna Nacher is also praised for her vocal technique - she has mastered various types of traditional styles of singing known as throat singing, developped through Central Asia and Eastern Europe. She regularly run voice trainings through a series of workshops (Poland, Greece, Germany, Slovenia).Released 10 albums, present on many compilations released in the UK, Sweden, the U.S, Italy, toured the United States in 2001 and 2006 (from Knitting Factory, NYC through SXSW, Austin to Bottom of the Hill, SF). They also regularly play and run workshops in Europe (Germany, France, Belgium, Netherlands, Switzerland, Sweden, Italy, Slovenia Central Europe). The recent cooperations include the split CD with the American group Cerberus Shoal (a pre-Big Blood project -ed.) released on Northeast Indie.  -from last.fm 3/5/2009
