  "Popol Vuh is still alive
  the beginning of German electronic music
  Florian Fricke lives on in his piano and Moog tracks
  in the middle of our new project "Popol Vuh beyond"
  a new Berlin soul mood in the timewarp machine
  from two old members of Popol Vuh and a new balkanian voice
  in the spirit of Florian's musical genius
  It was a great journey for us to continue Florian's legacy."
