On the back liner notes there is a sort of explanation of the titles: pan of course is the greek god responsible for shepherds who was always with a flute, ra is the sun god of ancient Egypt. The only three living descendants of the submerged land of Atlantis combine music from the middle ages, modern times, asia, classicism, and jazz, to create this new music of atlantis. There are no fixed pieces but always a bit is improvised.
As if the graeco-egyptian conflation of gods isn't odd enough, note the tracks called 'shiva' (a hindu god which features slightly out of tune bagpipes) and 'lorelei.'
Album was recorded in Germany, although there is a note that tracks 2 and 5 were recorded at the Abbey de Senanque in 1977.
Stylistically this is similar to so much droney ethnic progressive folk-jazz such as Clivage or the instrumental folky passages on Ribeiro-Alpes, those who know their other record, musique d'atlantide, will be familiar.
