Hagalaz - A Ritual Mantra Rap performed by Detlef Schlich and Crystal Liebach ( Directors Hagalaz Cut)

Hagalaz explores the role that ceremony can play in the resolution of trauma. It offers an insight into how such ceremonies can transform previously shattered relationships and reestablish meaningful connections with others. The experience of suffering was recorded through narrative and a symbolic releasing of the past.
