Acoustic dark folk from North Macedonia – Perija is the Turkish root word for ”fairy”: it is this mythological connection with the darkness of the Balkan forests that the band members want to convey in their music. They merge their local traditional music with Middle-Eastern Maqam, North-African styles, blues, post-punk, atonal and jazz. Their songs are in different languages of the Balkans in the name of equality. Their songs are inspired by current social issues, poetry, newspaper clippings, or even old, and often morbid village songs.
