The Otherworld Cycle is the culmination of over fourteen years of research of the Finno-Ugric traditions and music. The Cycle consists of a series of new compositions and improvisations inspired by the poems of the Finnish National Epic known as the Kalavela, as well as Karelian regional folk songs, and Sami Joik song elements of the native peoples of the north. The Other World thematic abstractly reference the Uralic “Body of Memory” embedded in Romus’ musical psyche refracted through the multi-faceted lens of improvisation and postmodern jazz.

Black Cedar performs "Spinning Dance" from Nathan Kolosko's "Hungarian Trio" (2012)
Black Cedar performs Chinary Ung's "Luminous Spirals" (1997) “Life is so delicate,” says Chinary Ung, when describing the casual twists of fate that kept him in the United States in the late 1960’s and prevented him from returning to his native Cambodia and being caught in the crosshairs of the murderous Khmer Rouge. Days before his return flight, a chance meeting in an elevator led to a scholarship at Columbia University, thus keeping him in the West. “If I did not go (to that office), and I did not take that elevator at exactly the perfect time, I would have been sent back to Cambodia (permanently).” With Pol Pot’s disdain for intellectuals, “I would be gone in no time at all,” says Ung. His three brothers and one sister perished in the genocide. Luminous Spirals was written in 1997 during a period of prolific writing, and it draws upon the idea of a spiral – something that circles back but continues going.
