    The acclaimed Spanish fusion band IMÁN CALIFATO INDEPENDIENTE has its origins at a convention, given by the meditation guru Maja-raj-ji, in the mid Seventies. Like genuine hippies, the musicians lived together in one house in El Puerto De Sta. Maria and eventually they founded IMAN, featuring Inaki Egana (bass and vocals), Kiko Guerrero (drums and percussion), Marcus Mantero (keyboards), and Manuel Rodriguez (6 - and 12-string electric guitar, vocals and percussion). In '78 they made their first record, entitled "Iman Califato Independiente". In '80 IMAN produced their second and last album "Camino del Aguila". IMAN also appeared on the Spanish compilation albums "Rock Andalus" ('94) with the songs "Tarantos", "Cancion de la Oruga" and "Ninos" and the exciting 2-CD "Duende" ('97) with "Tarantos". Their strong and alternating sound is a fusion of symphonic rock in the vein of PINK FLOYD and the jazzrock from the CANTERBURY SCHOOL, added with some Andalusian flavour.
    Both albums by IMAN are worth listening if you are up to a mainly instrumental blend of jazzrock and symphonic rock. The rhythm-section is tight and adventurous, the guitarplay strong and the keyboards sound pleasant. The most captivating element of IMAN is the interplay between guitar and keyboards (at some moments evoking ICEBERG). The above-mentioned composition "Tarantos" (this is a flamenco rhythm) captures the best of IMAN, what a exciting guitar and keyboards! In contrary, "Ninos" (with vocals) is a wonderful and romantic, folky-oriented track. This emphasizes the variety of their music. ~
