One of many bands from Naples, and strictly connected to Osanna, with Corrado Rustici being the younger brother of that group's guitarist Danilo.
Not unlike Osanna they had a highly interesting fusion of progressive sounds with typical southern Italy and mediterranean rhythms.
A very good voice/instruments interplay is present throughout their majestic one and only album, Melos, released on Ricordi in 1973 with seven long tracks. Their sound is characterised by acoustic instruments such as flutes and horns (with four of the five players dealing with flutes) and acoustic guitars, but the album is by no means an acoustic one, with complex rhythm changes that sometimes resemble the Lizard-era King Crimson.
The band had a successful appearance at "III Festival d'avanguardia e nuove tendenze" held in Naples in June 1973, and split in 1974.
Some of the members kept playing, like Corrado Rustici that joined Osanna for their fourth album Landscape of life and later with Nova and a solo career.
Singer Gianluigi Di Franco collaborated with percussionist Toni Esposito during the 80's, he never left music and his main activity was in the Music Therapy field until his death in 2005.
A nice band that deserved more success.
