2010

  • HERE’S TO YOU!

    2011 is just around the corner and it is more than just another new year for us. It marks the end of the first decade since our debut ID. It is an end of an era that defined us and you all played a huge role in this. And for that we are more than grateful. We tried to portray this in our greeting video and as you will see; 7 years later everything comes in handy.

     

    So here's to you! All of you!

     

    Have a good one!

     

    Yours, Siddharta

    Night started with Puppetz, who warmed up the place. But after the first few beats of our intro it really started...club came alive and we started another mad night of rock'n'roll in Cvetličarna!

    After a warm-up with opening act Adam, who did the job perfectly, we hit the stage with a desire to make this evening as we have promised it to be – unforgettable!

  • WE HIT CVETLIČARNA TOMORROW, pt. 1

    Tomorrow we hit Cvetličarna with full force. The tickets are in high demand, so make sure you get them on time, the other option you may be left with (if you do not hurry) is all but appealing. However, for "true believers", our set-list will be different for each night and will cover our whole repertoire from 1999 up until 2010.

    As for our Friday gig ... It is virtually (read; not quite, but damn close) sold out. However there will be still some tickets available at the Cvetličarna's box office for all those who fail to buy them in pre-sale.

    A note for all who want to see the opening acts Adam and Puppetz - they both start precisely at 8.15 PM (CET), so make sure you get to the venue on time!

  • THE LAND – NEW SINGLE FROM SAGA

    The Land is the sixth single from Saga, produced by Ross Robinson in his LA studio. The song will also be featured in the film ‘Sfinga/Sphinx’ by Gregor Kresal (more at www.sfinga.net). The connection between the two is obvious: Sfinga/Sphinx – a legendary stone guardian of the mountain Triglav, so dignified, so grand and unapproachable, standing in the beauty of ‘The Land’ that is all around us.

     

    Allow yourself to be enchanted by it too. You can download all versions of the song here:

  • LAST KISS OF LIVINGSTON



    Theatrical rock concert for the young, aged 8 to 99


    Siddharta and Anton Podbevšek Theatre in Novo mesto are setting off on an interesting journey this April. With our music we will complement a theatrical performance directed by Nana Milčinski, which is to premiere on 8 April, 2010.

     

    You can find more info below and at www.antonpodbevsekteater.si.

     

    The performance entitled Last Kiss of Livingston is a synthesis of theatrical and electronic art and at the same time exploration of interdependence of classical music (Bach, Mozart and Rimsky-Korsakov) and modern rock. Siddharta, director Nana Milčinski and three female musicians undertake a story of an identity search, of a desire for fulfilment, and aim at innovation, at the new, at breakthrough, at discoveries of points, territories and models yet unknown. All of these come together through quotations of the Jonathan Livingston story, translated by Janez Gradišnik, narrated by Tomi M. and with the help of the technology of Skype by eminent Slovenians who have revealed their gestus within the universal and who, just as the literary figure of Jonathan Seagull, have themselves experienced the strain of the concept, the training, the faith in knowing and in the goal, and who have stood the negation of this singularity, experienced the isolation and the solitude, but nonetheless those selected for being a reference to and metaphor for the emergence of desire, the persistent dimension of desire which recognizes the inner calling to be its vocation, its gift fulfilment, as opposed to all the other and different circumstances.
