On September 7th at 19:00 we invite everyone to the IZOLYATSIA terrace to enjoy the concert by Mauna.
Mauna is the Donetsk band, performing atmospheric instrumental post-metal with fractions of different genres. It seems that only this kind of music could really reflect the existential reality of Donbass - the region developing the country's largest coal field for more than a hundred years.
Their work shows the influence of such pillars of the genre as Jesu, Neurosis, Isis, Cult of Luna and Blindead, but also it has its own distinctive flavor and unique melody that transfixes the listener.
This music also reflects the dialectic nature of coal and other-worldly greatness of slagheps, unbearable predetermination without any possibility to escape and a ghostly hint of freedom. Mauna means the practice of silence. At that the music of this group is able to express so much to make this practice more than justified.
