Foltin first hit it big with their second album, Arhimed, in the winter of 2000. They wore weird costumes akin to monks’ robes and did not have a single conventional instrument on stage, except for the bass guitar. The rest was made up of percussion with strange instruments, such as combs, tubes, or pots. These are known as “ready-made instruments.” The band utilises “Foltin-speak,” which is the phonetic mimicry of words from different languages without a semantic meaning.
