Ninth Wave Projects presents:
SIKHARA – “Dong Tian” / “冬天”
On line release
In March, Sikhara made a series of concerts across China. The duo of Scott Nydegger and Dave Howard were joined by collaborators including Steve Mackay, Nojiji collective, Chachy Englund, John Meyers and Xiao Di.
While in Xi’an putting the finishing touches on an upcoming ep, Sikhara recorded a session in a construction site, while hammers and saws blared from the floor below.
“Dong Tian” is a bleak and minimal track produced by Ninth Wave’s mobile studio, with vocals in the Chinese language. It serves as a documentation of this period in Sikhara’s unique musical voyage.
