New sense of Space: Dhidalah touring Europe

Probably in contrast to first impression, the band’s name refers to Japanese folklore, drawing reference to the mythical giant called Daidarabotchi [ダイダラボッチ / 大座法師]. This yōkai (Japanese mythical ghosts and monsters) is known for creating mountains, lakes, and islands with its enormous size. This name choice reflects Dhidalah’s vision of sound, which is as monumental and transformative as the giant itself.
Dhidalah are creating their songs based on jam sessions. They released their second album, Sensoria, in 2022 via Guruguru Brain, the same label Minami Deutsch are signed at. With the release, Dhidalah worked around the questions »Where is space? Is it in our brain? Or is it outside the planet Earth?«, opening you to a new sense of space.
