L'Arbre du Ténéré, known in English as the Tree of Ténéré, was a solitary acacia that was once considered the most isolated tree on Earth, standing alone for over 400 kilometers. It was a landmark on caravan routes through the Ténéré region of the Sahara in Northeast Niger, until it was knocked down by a drunk truck driver in 1973.
Quando gli Uomini Adoravano la Luna is the follow-up to the duo’s debut full length La Pelle del Fantasma (Holidays Records). Composers Maurizio Abate and Giovanni Donadini (Ottaven, Fantamatres) build a dialogue between open improvisation and armonic structures, moving from ambient soundies to a texture of soft psychedelia, trying to create a musical portrait of this special tree and its history, from the lonely past to the shape of today where a metallic sculpture replaced it. Out on red cassette. 

Includes unlimited streaming of ARBRE DU TÉNÉRÉ - Quando gli Uomini Adoravano la Luna via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.
