The Eternal Return is the outstanding new and third official album from the reknowned Bulgarian band IRFAN – the top selling artists on Prikosnovenie. You will find out, that the long wait was worth it and you’ll LOVE ‘The Eternal Return’! The new masterpiece counts 10 titles, that travel from the Sahara desert, to the Siberian steppes via the Gardens of Jerusalem and even the mystical worlds of Hildegarde Von Bingen.
The flutes are hypnotic and the voices transcendental. Transcendence is all across the album, together with the theme of the eternal return, return to our original source, the Garden of Eden. The male/female duo unavoidably reminds of Dead Can Dance; and as a logical step, on the new album Irfan adapt "Salamander" from the album "Toward the within".
‘The Eternal Return’ is Mystical - Dreamlike - Romantic and touched by divine grace, all at once! The quintet gathers the Earth, the Sky, the fire and water in a kind of modern liturgy that honours the past, the Egyptian, the medieval and the Christian cultures. This journey, through numerous oriental instruments such as oud, santoor, psalterion, daf, bodhran, duduk, ney, kaval… elevates the listener to the level of Life's mystery. May Irfan's music allow you to dream, dance, sing and see beyond the veil of illusions to taste the beauty of now / the present moment. Musical references of this album draw from Dead Can Dance, Azam Ali Niyaz, Hildegard Von Bingen…and far beyond!
