(Phurpa is a Russian musical collective and performance group currently formed in by Alexey Tegin, Daniil Zotov and Dmitry Tarakanov, recording and playing authentic ritual music of Bon, the oldest Buddhist tradition from Tibet, using ritual instruments and special tantric singing technique.
Alexei Tegin, a founding member and leader of the group, started exploring and experimenting with traditional and ritual music in the middle of the 1990s, at a legendary Cardinal Art Factory (Фабрика Кардинального искусства) in Moscow, led by Vladimir Epifantsev, controversial actor, director and propagator of trash-culture. Of crucial importance was his introduction to the spiritual tradition of Bon and Dzogchen and his meeting with singing masters of Gyumay and Gyuto tantric colleges.
Phurpa project is named after Phurpa Drugse Chempa (phur pa 'brug gsas chem pa), one of the five tutelary deities of the Father Tantra in Bon tradition (this unique deity has a lower part of his body shaped in a form of phurpa, or kīla, three-edged peg/knife, widely used in tantric Buddhist rituals). Band members are constantly studying ancient Tibetan liturgical practices and ceremonies of Bon tradition, both theoretically and practically. 
Phurpa uses ritual Tibetan instruments to perform their music, which includes dungkar (horn made out of huge seashell), dungchen (three-metre-long horn/trumpet), silnuyen (flat cymbals), nga (double-sided drum), damaru (drum, made out of human skulls), kangling (human thighbone trumpet), shang (bon tambourine), rolmo (other type of cymbals), etc.
Queen Elephantine is a Doom/Drone Metal band formed in 2006 in Hong Kong (currently based in Philadelphia), formed by Indrayudh Shome, Samer Ghadry, Brett Zweiman, Nathanael Totushek, Ian Sims, Camden Healy, Floris Moerkamp and Buddy van Nieuwenhoven. Their sound is a nebulous worship of heavy mood and time - a pilgrimage through cosmic sludge. The shapeshifting post-apocalyptic rock band draws from psychedelia, doom, drone, and noise as well as free jazz and sacred music from around the world).
