An Embrace' is a collaborative project between the Bulgarian experimental music collective Amek and the German music label Vaagner.

Commissioned by Easterndaze as part of the festival’s fourth edition, 'An Embrace' aims to create a bridge between two communities from the different cultural environments of Eastern and Western Europe.

Each label invited artists from the respective regions to form four duos. Evitceles & Fortunes Brine, Zhe Pechorin & Anasisana, krāllār & Ekin Fil, as well as Vague Voices & Crosspolar collaborated remotely to compose a piece inspired by the project's theme – 'An Embrace.’

The final results are compiled and presented as a joint release between Amek and Vaagner, comprising of a limited edition cassette tape and a riso-printed zine offering further insight into the artists's creative process, as well as writings by S. N., Tsvetan Tsvetanov, Krisztián Puskár and Stanimir Panayotov.

Funded by Musikfonds e.V. by means of the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media.
