Truly ritual music of earthly space ports for alien civilizations. This could be the soundtrack for Baalbek, Pumapunku, or Chaco Canyon. Listeners will immerse themselves into the cosmos of sound, experiencing unheard wonders and beauty. Oliwa has crafted this cassette with precision, grooves seamlessly rolling together, maintaining interest, diverse but never disjointed.
I know Rituals is an older release from 2012. This was released on the striking label Zeon Light out of Sweden. This release dates back in Zeon Light catalog, but since this is still available digitally from their bandcamp page, i thought it worth while to write about. You can also still purchase the cassette from the Oliwa bandcamp page. The music really is ageless and sounds like it could have been created in the 1970s or 2020s.
Oliwa has had a number of releases since Rituals and most are still available on cassette:
- Rituals 2012 (Zeon Light) available at Oliwa
- Futura 2013 (Zeon Light) available at Zeon Light or Oliwa
- Time Immemorial 2014 (Inner Islands) available at Inner Islands or Oliwa
- Oceanic Triangulation 2014 (Inner Islands) (2 tapes, 4 artists) available at Inner Islands or Oliwa
