Now on bandcamp: “A Raga For Florian - In einem unbekannten Land und einer unbekannten Zeit” by Valerio Cosi. Originally released in an ultra-limited quantity and privately pressed for friends only (30 copies, January 2007) with a different title ("A Sacred Homage To Florian Fricke"). "A Raga For Florian" has Valerio diving deep into German Kosmische Musik, heavily manipulating samples from the band Popol Vuh (prominently Dyong Yun's vocals) and his own album "Conference of the Aquarians" (a slowed down version of "Part III" with Enzo Franchini on drums).

Documentary ‘KRAUTROCK 2’

Krautrock2DVD2020-11-26

Documentary ‘KRAUTROCK 2’ by Adele Schmidt and Jose Zegarra Holder scheduled for release in january 2021.

“Krautrock 2 concentrates on German Krautrock bands from the South of Germany, including Popol Vuh.Munich was a cultural epicenter for music and film (and still is). Here is where Florian Fricke, the founder of Polpol Vuh, met German film director Werner Herzog. Florian worked with Herzog on music scores for films like Cobra Verde, The Enigma of Kaspar Hauser, Nosferatu the Vampire, Heart of Glass, and the award-winning film Fitzcarraldo, about the Opera-loving European Brian Fitzgerald (Klaus Kinski) who, in order to become a successful rubber baron, plans to bring a massive boat over a mountain in the Peruvian jungle. Krautrock 2 talks about Popol Vuh. We hear insights from Daniel Fichelscher (Popol Vuh) and Renate Knaup (Amon Düül II) who were close to Florian. Florian Fricke who died in 2001, was the first musician who had a Moog synthesizer in Germany and with that instrument he started to experiment and created music that didn’t exist before. Popol Vuh broke new ground and created something on their own.”(Adele Schmidt and Jose Zegarra Holder. (www.progdocs.com)
