The Star of Išhtar consists of Ada Sargatis (vocals, songwriting, synthesizers, programming) and Andrei Ushakov (guitars, programming) featuring session musicians. Dark aesthetics, the powerful archetypal roots of our past and the heritage of ancient cultures are likely to be the key elements of the project’s DNA. The project members metaphorically refer to their style as “tamed insanity”.

“They seem to create between light and shadow, digital and analog, blending geography and time; their songs are rich with references to the past, present, and future. Guided by feeling and meaning, they constantly experiment with sound and form, moving freely between genres and worlds.”
