Not a prog band, the Nomadi have been in their long career, that still lasts today with a different line up, one of the most loved Italian groups, with a cult following that has given them many hits.
Sometimes their albums are mentioned in foreign dealers' lists as "prog", but be warned, they're by no means a progressive band! I Nomadi started in 1963 and their first single came in 1965 with Donna la prima donna. With a repertoire initially based on cover versions (by the likes of Dion, Sonny Bono, Moody Blues) the band had many hits in the 60's playing a beat inspired pop. Their first album in 1967, Per quando noi non ci saremo, is usually considered as one of the most important Italian beat albums, also notable for being not just a singles compilation (as it was the case with most Italian artists' LP's at the time) but a concept album on youth problems. The album has slight psych influences, mostly in the group image as demonstrated by the nice cover.
Between late 60's and early 70's the band veered towards pop, and gradually abandoned the protest songs that made them famous in their early days, despite being always close to left-wing movements. According to some critics, a slight prog influence can be heard in their 1971-73 production.
Leader Augusto Daolio died in 1992, and the group still exists with new musicians around the only remaining member Carletti and has the usual intense live activity.
