info 

In 1981, Dutch musician and ethnomusicologist Wouter Swets (1930-2016) took his ensemble Calgija to the studio to record their second album. The recordings were completed, but the liner notes took much more time than anticipated. Meanwhile, Calgija’s line-up changed to the extent that the material and performance were no longer considered representative. The project was shelved and eventually forgotten, and Swets went back to the studio in 1983 for a second attempt. While the 1981 master tapes were lost, a cassette copy turned up in the estate of Wouter Swets in 2020. Out of twelve tracks, three were redone and released on other albums. The remaining nine have been supplemented with eight live tracks from 1978.
