Nele tudo é possível. O sonho confunde-se com a realidade. O homem é mulher, que é homem novamente, que é bicho, que não é coisa nenhuma. As sombras mexem-se sem dono, sem luz. A memória surge difusa em breves fragmentos de lucidez, para logo se dissipar. Um regresso ao Éden. Talvez seja este o lugar da morte. Talvez seja VÄLUTE. … Continued

Six years after their debut in Portugal, at the second edition of SonicBlast, the German trio Samsara Blues Experiment return to SonicBlast Moledo.
