ATA Records are proud to announce the follow up to the critically acclaimed debut album from The Sorcerers. Conceived as a soundtrack to an imagined lost European exploitation film, 'In Search of The Lost City of The Monkey God' covers a wide range of influences: Ethiopiques Ethio-Jazz rubs up against European library music of the 60s and 70s.
Persepolis Capital of Persia in Greek was the center and ceremonial capital of the mighty Persian Empire. It was a beautiful city, adorned with precious artworks of which unfortunately very little survives today. In BC, Alexander the Great, in the process of conquering the Persian Empire, burnt Persepolis to the ground as a revenge for the burning of the Acropolis of Athens.
Persepolis remained the capital of Persia as a province of the great Macedonian Empire but gradually declined in the course of time. The Roman emperor Septimius Severus — , who was born at Leptis, became a great patron of the city. Under his direction an ambitious building program was initiated. Over the following centuries, however, Leptis began to decline because of the increasing difficulties of the Roman Empire.
After the Arab conquest of , the lost city fell into ruin and was buried by sand for centuries. In , Genghis Khan razed Urgench to the ground. Young women and children were given to the Mongol soldiers as slaves, and the rest of the population was massacred. Vijaynagar was once one the largest cities in the world with , inhabitants.
The Indian city flourished between the 14th century and 16th century, during the height of the power of the Vijayanagar empire. During this time, the empire was often in conflict with the Muslim kingdoms.
The victorious Muslim armies then proceeded to raze, depopulate, and destroy the city and its Hindu temples over a period of several months. Despite the empire continuing to exist thereafter during a slow decline, the original capital was not reoccupied or rebuilt. It has not been occupied since. Hidden inside the jungles of the Mexican state of Campeche, Calakmul is one of the largest Maya cities ever uncovered. Calakmul was a powerful city that challenged the supremacy of Tikal and engaged in a strategy of surrounding it with its own network of allies.
Eventually both cities succumbed to the spreading Maya collapse. The Roman Emperor Diocletian built a wall and expanded the city in order to try and save it from the Sassanid threat. The city was captured by the Muslim Arabs in but kept intact. The city declined under Ottoman rule, reducing to no more than an oasis village. In the 17th century its location was rediscovered by western travelers. In the 6th century Ctesiphon was one of the largest city in the world and one of the great cities of ancient Mesopotamia.
Because of its importance, Ctesiphon was a major military objective for the Roman Empire and was captured by Rome, and later the Byzantine Empire, five times. The city fell to the Muslims during the Islamic conquest of Persia in After the founding of the Abbasid capital at Baghdad in the 8th century the city went into a rapid decline and soon became a ghost town.
Ctesiphon is believed to be the basis for the city of Isbanir in the Thousand and One Nights. Located in Iraq, the only visible remain today is the great arch Taq-i Kisra. Hvalsey was a farmstead of the Eastern Settlement, the largest of the three Viking settlements in Greenland. They were settled in approximately AD by Norse farmers from Iceland. At its peak the site contained approximately 4, inhabitants. Following the demise of the Western Settlement in the mid-fourteenth century, the Eastern Settlement continued for another years.
In a wedding was recorded at the Hvalsey Church , but that was the last word to come from Greenland. Situated along a major east-west caravan route, Ani first rose to prominence in the 5th century AD and had become a flourishing town and the capital of Armenia in the 10th century.
At its height, Ani had a population of , to , people. It remained the chief city of Armenia until Mongol raids in the 13th century, a devastating earthquake in , and shifting trade routes sent it into an irreversible decline.
Eventually the city was abandoned and largely forgotten for centuries. The ruins are now located in Turkey. Palenque in Mexico is much smaller than some of the other lost cities of the Mayan, but it contains some of the finest architecture and sculptures the Maya ever produced.
The city declined during the 8th century. An agricultural population continued to live here for a few generations, then the lost city was abandoned and was slowly grown over by the forest. Located near the south-eastern shore of Lake Titicaca in Bolivia, Tiwanaku is one of the most important precursors to the Inca Empire. During the time period between BC and AD Tiwanaku is thought to have been a moral and cosmological center to which many people made pilgrimages.
The community grew to urban proportions between the 7th and 9th centuries, becoming an important regional power in the southern Andes. At its maximum extent, the city had between 15,—30, inhabitants although recent satellite imaging suggest a much larger population. On August 24, 79 AD, the volcano Vesuvius erupted, covering the nearby town Pompeii with ash and soil, and subsequently preserving the city in its state from that fateful day.
Everything from jars and tables to paintings and people were frozen in time. Pompeii, along with Herculaneum, were abandoned and eventually their names and locations were forgotten. They were rediscovered as the results of excavations in the 18th century. The lost cities have provided an extraordinarily detailed insight into the life of people living two thousand years ago.
In the 2nd century BC a new civilization arose in the valley of Mexico. A decline in population in the 6th century AD has been correlated to lengthy droughts related to the climate changes. A vast, unique city, carved into the side of the Wadi Musa Canyon in southern Jordan centuries ago by the Nabataeans, who turned it into an important junction for the silk and spice routes that linked China, India and southern Arabia with Egypt, Greece and Rome.
After several earthquakes crippled the vital water management system the city was almost completely abandoned in the 6th century. After the Crusades, Petra was forgotten in the Western world until the lost city was rediscovered by the Swiss traveler Johann Ludwig Burckhardt in Between ca. As Tikal reached peak population, the area around the city suffered deforestation and erosion followed by a rapid decline in population levels. Tikal lost the majority of its population during the period from to and central authority seems to have collapsed rapidly.
After , Tikal was all but deserted, although a small population may have survived in huts among the ruins. Even these people abandoned the city in the 10th or 11th centuries and the Guatemalan rainforest claimed the ruins for the next thousand years. Angkor is a vast temple city in Cambodia featuring the magnificent remains of several capitals of the Khmer Empire, from the 9th to the 15th century AD. During its long history Angkor went through many changes in religion converting between Hinduism to Buddhism several times.
The end of the Angkorian period is generally set as , the year Angkor was sacked and looted by Ayutthaya invaders, though the civilization already had been in decline. Nearly all of Angkor was abandoned, except for Angkor Wat, which remained a Buddhist shrine. One of the most famous lost cities in the world, Machu Picchu was rediscovered in by Hawaiian historian Hiram after it lay hidden for centuries above the Urubamba Valley.
Although known locally in Peru, it was largely unknown to the outside world before being rediscovered in Completely destroyed by one of the hugest volcano eruptions in 17th century BC, excavations have revealed unique findings of prehistoric life in the Mediterranean area. Well done and a great list to read about but some of them were easily bumped by the oldest civilization site found in the western hemisphere.
The site is called poverty point. The stone work looks like it was the Olmec who stopped off in Louisiana to build a civilization site before they moved down to Mexico. The list will not be full without Nan Madol. I apsolutly love lost citys the history and storys that comes with it is breathtaking and amazing, me and my boyfriend want to have a trip and go and see al the lost citys that are possible to see even if i know its gonna coat alot but I mean you only live once hey.
I would love to visit Carthage. Anuradhapura Sri Lanka must have been there. It was the greatest hydraulic civilization in the world and the system is still working cultivating tens of thousand of paddy lands. At the same time, the tallest brick built structure Jathawanaramaya in the world was part of it and it was the third tallest building in the ancient world after two great pyramids of Giza.
Amazing list. It leaves me relizing how much more there is to see og the world. Ive only been to 2 on this list! Very cool idea for a post. Great list! So amazing. I love anything abandoned or lost to time. Something mysterious and oddly immortalized even though it has been long forgotten. Maybe just because it seems like it was frozen at that very moment forever. Would love to explore some of these places for myself!
How absolutely incredible! So far Angkor Wat and Pompeii are the only ones I have managed. This is an amazing idea for a post! What will NYC look like when it is abandoned? A lesser known ancient preColumbian city lies right in the heartland of America.
Cahokia, located on the eastern face of the Missippi river valley east of St Louis, Mo, was the largest preColombian city in north America. I knew that Johnny would put out whatever it was I was made so there was a slight pressure, but I also quickly realised I was having so much fun just making the stuff. I realised that if I was going to get through this week and enjoy it while also having something to show for it, I just had to keep moving on.
I got into a rhythm that was just super fun, I was never in the negative critiquing zone, I was always in this place of responding and creating. Rachel Aggs, photo by Stephanie Gibson. Though Aggs had vague ideas of recording some ambient or experimental work, by the time her week was up she had produced a series of sublime, self-contained songs.
Given the recent lockdown situation, they feel particularly resonant now. By extension, everything the Visitations series has produced so far offer wildly different views of the exact same place. Franny's Bothy. Lynch witnessed the show they played there. They took over her entire place, filling it with loads of equipment. It took a long time for them to set up, and they jammed for what seemed like hours in her living room - the musicians Jason, Aaron Espinoza and Peter Walker each playing samplers, synths, drum machines, and guitar.
It was pretty psychedelic. This collage was then being fed to a projector outside of the cottage, and projected on to the walls - and this, in turn, was being filmed by another member of the Arthur King crew, Aaron Farley.
Arthur King's show, projected onto Ailidh Morrison's cottage. Lytle played a solo set during the day, and at 3. It was pretty surreal. I really loved it, was so cool having it be part of the event. People were extremely gracious. I plan on returning, I hope. There is a certain spirit with its source in the Isle of Eigg itself that is given the space to manifest by the artists and creatives who surround both projects, wonderful in every one of its infinite guises. Series two of the Visitations series is currently ongoing, with physical and digital subscriptions available now.

Searching for the Lost City (a concept compilation) Find A Way (Feat. Benzosa and Alyssa G). Conceived as a soundtrack to an imagined lost European exploitation film, 'In Search of The Lost City of The Monkey God' covers a wide range of influences: Ethiopiques Ethio-Jazz rubs up against European library music of the 60s and 70s. The Sorcerers seamlessly blend these disparate elements into one cohesive sound. The Lost City reminded me of a Dr. Shivago of the Caribbean done with incredible charm, taste and subtleness. This is not just a work of art but an act of love which cuts through the midst of a cultural maelstrom of rejection which every Cuban lover of justice and freedom has had to endure.
