happy birthday gillian / chechen zikr / chants

so last night in the middle of cosmic bombshell gillian‘s birthday party, this happened:

happy birthday gillian (b flat universe) 05.02.11

(this was preceded by an explanation that the big bang was in the key of b flat.)

at the end of the recording you can hear boots say “that was like the chechen zikr,” which is an old field recording i found years ago online, and possibly the most intense recording i’ve ever heard. the chechens are a notorious/cut-throat bunch, but their chants are incredible/trance-inducing:

chechen zikr
(if anyone knows the origin of this recording please let me know.)

the men in action:

try to vibe as hard as these guys.
