Wûtas stands for all the archaic powers of nature.
If “the Wûtas” was arriving, nobody knew what would happen. Sometimes it made presents, sometimes it treated you cruelly.
Sometimes insufferable noise, sometimes lovely music, that bewitches dangerously ... like our music!

A ghostly band of demons, hunting the night sky, would either bring you suffering or unearthly gifts.
