With this album Volga destroyed the monopoly of decorative folklore groups on the fashionable ethnic theme and gave a chance for the youth to touch the native Russian culture and to feel its' ritual roots.
The artists managed to build a kind of a bridge between Russian archaic folklore along with pagan ritual rhythms and the aesthetics of modern electronics. They recorded the album at the studio of Nick Artamonov, a famous sound director and producer with the assistance of Nikolay Nebogatov, a well-known musician.
