SEE MORE ABOUT THIS RELEASE
On the one side there is the Zindagi, a Hindustani word of Persian origin which means ‘life’. For Buddhist people this is the endless cycle of personal reincarnations, each characterised by individual choices resulting in joy and suffering. According to that ancient culture, each choice we make marks the path to the next reincarnation. On the other hand there is the Nirvana, which is the freedom from that endless cycle, the extinction of individual passion, hatred, and delusion: finding the peace of soul and rejecting the concept of self.
The delicate equilibrium between selfness and its rejection was the inspiring force for Katabtu to produce his ethereal EP. This comprises two original tracks titled Nirvana and Zindagi, accompanied by three powerful remixes by Dan Bay, Jack Essek, and Jati Div.
Katabtu is part of a music collective named ‘Kollektiv Liebe’, whose purpose is raising funds for social projects by means of musical events and releases. Such a valuable and selfless decision taken by the collective resonate with the theme of the Nirvana EP, and to the importance of individual choices. Just like they affect the cycle of reincarnations in the Buddhist culture, daily individual choices affect our immediate future, and the future of our societies. A chain of hardly predictable events is activated every moment. Thus, every moment we live and act altruistically, we have the chance to care about others, about nature, about the world we live in. Mind small choices, tame the
self. Doing so, Zindagi and Nirvana may meet in the quotidianity.
