String player Antonio Bertoni (Leo Records, Astral Sprits) in his solo Ongon project seeks to bring back the shamanic elements of Moroccan Gnawa Music, particularly using the trance-inducing bass instrument guimbri, his hypnotic and exotic music set into a rich weaving of electronics, samples and concrete synthesis built ad hoc by Bertoni himself.

sample the album:
"Exuvia places itself in that small number of products that try to remove the mistreatment that today the gnawa music suffers due to the heavy western productions and to reveal the original load, the trance that constitutes its essence, through an intelligent combination of the elements. In Exuvia the main instrument of shamanic transmission is used (the guimbri, an instrument that timbrically recalls a bass) and the trance is connected to a weave of electronics, samples and concrete synthesis built ad hoc by Bertoni."-Ettore Garzia
