1500 years ago there were stories of an ancient mountain herb that was believed to restore life to the dead.
The myth of miraculous plant spread far across the eastern world till the Shah reigning over Persia decided to locate it, sending his physician Borzuy into the mystic kingdom of Hindustan.
The journey took Borzuy through the land, into deep forests, to the peaks of the highest mountains and ultimately into his own mind. It was there that he met the sage who unlocked the mystery of the herb he was seeking.
Kalila was found on top of this mountain.
Where do I find it now?
Knowledge is what you seek.
The search led Borzuy to an ancient text hidden inside the kingdom’s treasury. His request to access the manuscripts shocked the court as the true identity of Kalila had only been known to a few. The king however allowed Borzuy to read it in his presence.
The knowledge written by the immortal was passed on as Borzuy returned to his country, understanding and translating it as he lived out the rest of his life.
Kalila is the journey of Borzuy expressed by natives of India who have chosen the universal medium of sound to transmit their knowledge.
Kalila spread throughout the world and found itself integrated into stories in several languages. It still exists today in the form of children’s fables known as the Panchatantra.
These sounds have been compiled by Audio Psykosis and digitally circulated in May 2009 via a portal of electronic sound accessible though liquidfrequency.com
The concept art for Kalila is based around the work of Dhiren Sasmal, a celebrated artist and illustrator from West Bengal.
