ASBAAR is a meeting with our ancestors who speak to us in our dreams, and teach us how to run our lives, everything that lies between the energies that move the world. To hear is to connect with
our collective conscience, irrational consciousness that unites all living things together with all the energy that moves the universe. ASBAAR is an
ancient Iberian culture word that means "worship of our ancestors"

the magical and esoteric view of nature, sounds that evoke landscapes full of lights and shadows between the dense forest vegetation, immersing in the cold waters of a river or a look into the
sky and earth creators. A different point of view within the Dark Ambient, a new change in the work of ASBAAR. A walk through the nature provides and she hides , between the empirical and
rational against the world of magical dreams. The Art Work of this album, is the first time that Marc exposes a collection of his own artistic photographs.
