Dancæstral (pronunced daːnsɛs.tɹəl) is the combination of the words ‘Dance’ and ‘Ancestral’, meaning purely instinctive dancing, movements our body makes without an intention, under the influence of an involving music. Like you’re excited or enraptured while playing or enjoying a live concert.
The band was born to express this primordial, instinctive and basic human reaction. It starts when you let yourself go to the music, just out of the box, free from conventions and materialism we’re usually absorbed, confined and inhibited. Sound envelopes the body which moves in a weird, uncoordinated way. Barriers break down, other people expectations and shame are gone.
In that moment we’re just “the all singing, all dancing crap of the world” as Tyler Durden from ‘Fight Club’ would say.
When this situation occurs, the result is a contamination between atmosphere, adrenaline, anger and inspiration, defined as ‘Dancæstral’.
THE ANCESTOR gravitates around the hypothesis that every living being is dominated by an entity named “Cordycep” referring to what we commonly call “soul”.
When the host organism dies, the Cordycep moves to a new being next to come to existence, continuing its journey and affecting the new host’s life with the traces and undertones from the previous existence.
All this results in a sense of impotence towards personal defects, emotions, intentions and the frustration that comes from not having complete control of one’s self.
