DORDEDUH performed four songs from NEGURA BUNGET — "Cunoasterea Tacuta", "Tesarul De Lumini", "Norilor" and "Hora Soarelui" — plus another two acoustic tracks from the forthcoming "Maiestrit" album (the magical and passionate re-interpretation of NEGURA BUNGET's classic LP "Maiastru Sfetnic" from 2000) and four brand new originals from DORDEDUH.
Fan-filmed video footage of the concert can be viewed below.
DORDEDUH recently inked a deal with Lupus Lounge/Prophecy Productions.
Commented the group: "We hope that this moment will open a meaningful journey for both sides and that our paths will join together into a fruitful collaboration.
"Our first material released by Lupus Lounge/Prophecy will be a vinyl with two songs stylistically quite different from each other, but both capable to provide an idea as to how our first album (due to be released next year) would sound like. We can already say that we named our first album, which is to be called 'Dardeduh'. As the word 'dar' means 'gift', 'present', the entire meaning of the name of the album would be translated as 'a gift of/with spirit.'"
