Karfagen – (means Karthago) a symbol of glory and wisdom and also it is a never-ending journey into the world of the forgotten past and un-predictable future.
The name Karfagen was first heard in 1997 when Antony Kalugin formed the band at school. While he was studying at the architectural university (1998) he began to record the first KARFAGEN album.
And then they were two. Antony Kalugin and his close friend Sergei Kovalev (accordion and harmonica).
In 2002 Antony completed his first solo album “the Water” Then there was another period of silence where Antony worked on commercial new age – relax projects.
From 2003 – 2005 Antony composed and performed on more than 40 albums, that were released in Russia and Ukraine. With those projects, Antony gathered the necessary funds to record the first KARFAGEN Album and in 2005 the band reformed and went into the studio to record CONTINIUM, the first KARFAGEN album which led the band to sign with UNICORN DIGITAL .
