Sanatana is a conceptual project created by Jurgis and his wife in 2016. Their friends and like-minded persons inspired by Vedic ideology and ancient culture also taking part in it.
Musical range is very wide: it’s metal, ethnic, Vedic-ethnic and news-age. Such specter gives an opportunity to express the whole mood and significance that pawned in Sanatana project.
Live and authentic instruments from various ancient cultures were used for the record adding inscrutability and charm to the music. Sounds of mantras and prayers (in ancient language Sanskrit from Upanishads and other Vedic writings) are also spellbinding. These mantras and prayers performed by Vedic tradition priests.
