Below is a commentary by the label.

"Folklore Tapes, a folklore research label, first focused overseas on the Breton countryside of Rochefort-en-Terre. It was once home to the famous witch Naia, and is home to the famous ``Gunami,'' known for the ``Wand of the Spirit.'' He cured diseases, cursed the local people, split them in two, and crushed hot coals into dust with his hands!

Naia, in collaboration with the Brittany art group Le Bon Acceuil, focuses on the only known article and stunning photo shoot by journalist Charles Genue, published in the World Wide Magazine in 1899. , which explores the infamous witch in two different sounds.

The A-side was by Breton musician Pauline Marx (Le Diable Dégoûtant), and the B-side was by British duo Le Voile Universel.

Breton residents moved from the countryside to the cities.Many aspects of traditional folk culture at the time were on the verge of extinction.Photographer Charles Genu (1870-1931) was passionate about documenting these traditions.So in 1899, Genieux wrote an article for Wide World magazine about a witch who lived in Rochefort-en-Terre, a picturesque town in the south of Brittany.The article, entitled Naia, the Witch of Rochefort, describes Genieux's encounter with Naia at the ruins of the Château de Rieux, as well as her conversations with various local people she has met over the years.According to the locals, Naia "travels through the air or underground on a broomstick when she doesn't want to be seen doing business. Additionally, Naia "picks up glowing coals and... You can crush it with your fingers and scatter it in the wind.'' She also tells Jeniau about Gnami, a powerful spirit who lives through her and obeys her every command. In the photo accompanying the article , Nia turns her lens forward, piercing the viewer with her gaze, begging us to meet her gaze across the years."

Folklore Tapes:

"Folklore Tapes first foray overseas finds them in the rural Breton village Rochefort-en-Terre. Once inhabited by the renowned witch Naia, who along with her 'spirit stick' familiar 'Gnami' cured ills, cursed locals, split in two and crushed hot coals into dust using her hands!

Naia is a collaboration with Brittany arts group Le Bon Acceuil and features two distinct sonic explorations into the infamous witch, largely based around the only known article and stunning photoshoot by journalist Charles Géniaux, published in World Wide Magazine in 1899. Face A is by Breton musician Pauline Marx AKA Le Diable Dégoûtant, Face B is by UK group Le Voile Universel (The Universal Veil) AKA Sam McLoughlin and David Chatton Barker.

The residents of rural Breton were leaving the country for the cities. Many aspects of the traditional folk culture of the time were on the verge of disappearing. The photographer Charles Géniaux (1870-1931), was keen to document these traditions. To this end , in 1899, Géniaux wrote an article for The Wide World Magazine about a witch who lived in the picturesque town of Rochefort-en-Terre, situated in the south of Brittany. The article, entitled Naia, the Witch of Rochefort, describes Géniaux's meetings with Naia in the Ruins of the Château de Rieux, as well as his conversations with various locals who had encountered her over the years. According to these locals, we learn that Naia “travels on a broom through the air—or maybe underground—when she does not want to be seen going on her errands; that she fears neither fire nor water, disappears when she likes, and takes any shape that may suit her purpose.” Furthermore, Naia is capable of “picking up red hot coals, which she crushed with her fingers and scattered to the winds.” She also tells Géniaux of Gnami, a powerful spirit who lives through her and obeys her every command. The photos which accompany the article show Naia facing down the lens, piercing the viewer with her look, beseeching us to meet her gaze across the years. "
