The sixth album of the Russian-Ukrainian project Kauan "Sorni Nai", which was released on October 20 via Finnish label Blood Music, is now available for free listening.
The band’s new studio work is dedicated to the Djatlov Pass Incident, in which the nine hikers died (officially due to hypothermia) in the northern Ural Mountains, in 1959. The album's title references an idol The Golden Woman of the Ural Mountains' Mansi region. The artwork by Sonia Melnik is a panorama displaying known imagery of the hikers skiing towards their destination. Earlier, Kauan has posted online two videos, created of the group’s photos and the excerpts of the short film "Wind, Mountains, Snow", originally produced by Eugeny Sadakov.
