STROM NOIR is the project of emil mat'ko who lives in bratislavia, slovakia. since 2007 he has released several records on various labels like hibernate, rural colours, u-cover or resting bell.
the tracks for "famadihana" were recorded after finishing the "dni stratili svoju farbu" cd (hibernate, march 2011) with aim to create quite minimal guitar drones.
"famadihana" refers to a funeray tradition of the malagasy people in madagascar known as "the turning of the bones", people bring forth the bodies of their ancestors from the family crypts and rewrap them in fresh cloth, then dance with the corpses around the tomb to live music.
