Inês is out for good!


We are so – so – so happy that it’s all falling into place! The books have arrived and their colour are brilliant! They reflect very much what I had in mind when I envisioned Inês album. It’s also a personal relief that all went well, after all it’s our first book edited ever, and editing so many pages (96) in full colour with a lot of pictures (that’s the least one can say) was quite a challenge! Doesn’t it look gorgeous?

Only one place to get it: http://astrakanproject.bandcamp.com/album/in-s

We’ll try to take decent pictures from the book tomorrow, and talk a bit more of the final rush… but you still can enjoy the music in the meantime.

Music under the Northern Lights


A small animation made with pictures of Northern Lights – we wish we had the equipment to film this beautiful show.
Music was the primary study for next album Inês (based on a medieval portuguese love story – and a true tragic love story !). Since we completely changed the idea, you still may enjoy it without spoiling it ! Again, a new concept by Astrakan Project : the fake teaser !

Honestly it is weird for us to imagine very soon when we’ll head to the South we won’t be scrutinising the sky for the magical Northern Lights.

Soon on the road again!


It’s been months since we’ve been thinking about what our next big road-trip could be, and it took a lot of energy to make sure we could make it happen, but we’re almost there, last passport should be there on Wednesday, and we’ll be ready to go. Where? To a mysterious magical destination from which we’ll work on plenty of new sounds and songs!

We’ve been quite a lot in Brittany over the last past months, and we really need a change and a boost of fresh air to get back on track and record. This time we aren’t going to have any gig on the way (though, we’re always ready for what shows up!), little health issues over the past year haven’t helped us to organise sustainable tours during the summer. So we thought we would dedicate that time to make some real progress on all what we’ve had on hold since we left Greece by the end of 2015. And it’s gonna be an adventure we’re thrilled to share with you!

Complete guided tour of our new studio on wheels coming soon too!
