about

Kailash marks the second collaboration between Italian sound artists Shinkei (David Sani) and Luigi Turra. After the subtle investigation of Japanese aesthetics with the album “Yu” (Non Visual Objects, 2009), they embraced a new vision in their research, however still characterized by the same spiritual and extremely meticulous approach to the sound matter. They created an intimate, almost intangible yet tactile piece, taking aural cues from the eastern culture once again.

Mount Kailash is a peak in the Himalayan mountains of western Tibet. The source of some of the longest rivers in Asia, Kailash is considered a sacred place for four faiths: Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism and the indigenous Tibetan religion of Bön.
Next to the mountain are two sacred lakes, Manasarowar and Rakshastal.

All four religions believe it would be an act of sacrilege to climb the mountain. So Mount Kailash its one of the few places on earth untouched by humans.
Legend has it that the only person to have reached the summit is the Buddhist poet Milarepa in the 12th century, and that all others who have ventured died in the process.

According to Hindu mythology, Shiva, the god of destruction and regeneration, resides at the summit of a legendary mountain named Kailāśā. Mount Kailāśā is regarded in many sects of Hinduism as Paradise, the ultimate destination of souls and the spiritual center of the world.

Tibetan Buddhists believe that Kailash is the home of the Buddha Demchok, who represents supreme bliss. They also say it was on this sacred mountain that Buddhism displaced Bön as the primary religion of Tibet.

Every year, thousands make a pilgrimage to Kailash, following a tradition going back thousands of years. Pilgrims of several religions believe that ambulating around Mount Kailash will remove sins and bring good fortune. The pilgrimage around the sacred mountain is called the Kailash Kora.
