After travelling concurrent paths for years, Offerings For the Destroyer sees the almost inevitable artistic union of Peruvian heads Montibus Communitas with the Argentine free-improvisation ensemble Ø+yn. Recorded live in Lima during the latter group's 2013 tour, the album features one massive smoke-drenched slice of deep mountain raga that surely stands out as a landmark recording in both groups' discographies.

Recorded live at the Círculo Bar in Lima, Peru by Luis Alvarado between 2-3:00 AM. Additional chants and pot smoke by the audience.


Listening to Ø+yn y Montibus Communitas‘ Offerings for the Destroyer, the inaugural release from Sky Lantern, one imagines being at a temple for a Hindu festival, or at the very least, a religious street fair. Violin, flute and percussion instruments create a mood of awe; crowd noises add a sense of excitement. From the happy vibe this tape creates, one imagines that a person might have been invited to bring their own cymbals and rain sticks to the concert. The improvised 34-minute raga was in fact performed in a Peruvian bar, a place in which even the Destroyer might feel welcome. By extending a hand to the Argentinian Ø+yn, Peru’s Montibus Communitas demonstrates a sense of brotherhood that carries throughout the set. - A closer listen
