Psychedelic sounds of eastern funk mixed with esoteric teachings of Tarot!
"Tarot funk" is an album that blends symbolism of Tarot with the musical heritage of '70s Anatolian rock, Thai funk, Cambodian psych-rock of the ‘60s, Dub and Afro-funk in one eclectic new genre called - Tarot Funk!
Each song on “Tarot Funk” is written for one specific card, thus combining music with Tarot's symbolism throughout the tracklist, with a purpose of creating a narrative which every listener must interpret for himself (download includes a special text guide to help you navigate).
nemanja decided to tell his story by using nine Tarot cards and compose music that is tied to the symbolism and meaning of each card. Set together, music, cards and text guide are referring to the full series of events that had occurred last year in his life. While he is recounting his tale, nemanja needs you to help him make sense of it all. While listening to the music and studying the cards, he is hoping that you will be able to transform his story; create your own meaning of these events, find patterns in your life, and by the end, your own story.
If, for some reason, you are not successful in finding meaning in all of this, just let the grooves free your ass and your mind will follow! I wish you all a pleasant journey!
