Misha Sultan is a multi-instrumentalist from Novosibirsk in the heart of Siberia. The location of his hometown, in the desert between Europe and Asia, provides a deep source of inspiration for his music.
Hive Mind Records have worked with Misha to release this superb collection of recordings made between 2015 and 2022. Roots is a beautiful introduction to Misha’s unique sound that incorporates elements of Eurasian folk music, psychedelia, chill-out, breakbeat, dub and field recordings from the 1990s. to produce a captivating sound.
While Hive Mind Records and Misha were working on this release, Russia invaded Ukraine and Misha was forced to leave the country quite suddenly. All money from sales of the digital album will go directly to the artist to help them through this difficult time.
