Bettina told me once of the license Florian gave to some people from Eastern Europe for releasing several Popol Vuh titles. Recently I found evidence for this. In 1996 Andrzej and Mira Boryna (Boryna Foundation) had a personal meeting in Munich with Florian Fricke. During that meeting they got from him a licence for several titles on their Ananda Music label. Above mentioned albums – and maybe more? - were released on cassette. The Boryna Foundation is a organization dedicated to spreading the idea of using music as a tool for healing, therapy, supporting education. They consider Florian Fricke is one of their ‘Spiritual Patrons’.
