World Flag Records (in english)

The CD-R label launched by Anna Nacher & Marek Styczyński in 2007 to document various projects ranging from unusual live recordings through ad-hoc, spontaneous collective initiatives, meetings with fellow musicians and musical field trips.

Apart from the Magic Carpathians Project’s own releasings, it currently contains 3 series: Biomusic (music with strong aquatic element) Other Stage (Magic Carpathians Project-related albums: reissues, jam sessions, live recordings) and Psychogeography (field recordings made during our travels across remote places in Europe and Asia).

It is a non-profit initiative, any financial contributions proceed towards further releasings and support for Biotop Lechnica (Magic Carpathians’ mountain permaculture center)
