Phá: ‘to give’ in some South African languages ; a word born from Africa, cradle and origin of the modern human race, the motherland of all motherlands.
Yán: ‘cliff’ in Mandarin Chinese ; a word born from China, where mountains are of natural, cultural, and spiritual significance for its people.

Taking roots from its primary meaning (‘to give to the cliff’) and from a broader, inclusive perspective, the name Pháyán came to life to nourish and convey a selfless, ancestral, and symbolic message through its music, bound to be a gift for all beings, places, and times, ‘to be given to the edges of the world’.
