DJ Dervish is an Edmontonian with passion for electronic and industrial music. He used to guest DJ at New City Liqwid Lounge, and host Gothic Debauchery Balls.
Hailing out of Edmonton in Alberta, Canada, Sangsaga was an alternative music band playing a mix of electronica with specific focus on industrial rock.

Whereas the latter signifies the state of being free from suffering and the cycle of reincarnation, the former describes the world of suffering and dissatisfaction connected to the cycle of birth, death, and rebirth.
I took pictures of Sangsara at New City Suburbs in Edmonton, Alberta when then opened for Left Spine Down:
