Mehehe is an intriguing duo that unconventionally refers to the tradition of polish whispers and folk magic. The band tells stories that have survived in nursery rhymes, solstrice night lyrics and spells, magical sentences. The same mysterious force of nature, unintelligible, terrifying and enormous, which once motivated people to create cults, spells and protective behaviors, becomes an inspiration to musical discoveries, making sounds and creating an atmosphere.
