about

"Bitter Balls" showcases the incredible progression and artistic flow undergone by the Karkhana septet in the 5 years since its inception. Four new finely tuned compositions of crystal clear and deep, dark, distorted unrock – electric and acoustic. The cross between old school and contemporary oriental free-jazz sounds and western improv-prog. Ripe fruits of love and wisdom.
