It’s truly music without barriers and one of the most breathtaking musical experiences in contemporary music. I don’t know what genius is but Kalmuk will do until a decent definition comes along. -Jazzwise.
Comings and goings: mestizo musics. Baroque music of the colonial era in dialogue with the Flamenco. Arcángel and Fahmi Alqhai record the dialogue between flamenco and baroque music ‘Las idas y las vueltas’. Arcángel and Accademia del Piacere, conducted by Fahmi Alqhai, have finished recording the project ‘Las idas y las vueltas’. The album, which will come together with a DVD about the show, will be released this April by the independent label Alqhai&Alqhai. The disc will include the encounter between colonial baroque music and flamenco which the cantaor and the classical music group premiered at the 2011 International Music and Dance Festival of Granada, and which has already been presented at forums like the Auditorio Nacional in Madrid and Elche’s Medieval Festival, among others.
According to Anglagard‘s own discography, playing at Progfest in 1993 was one of their earliest live gigs. The young group at work had just released their first album Hybris and what you hear is a young group at work whose ambition and hunger steamrolled over their few deficiencies. This debut album and its follow up Epilog were two of the first to light a fire under what was a growing revival in the symphonic progressive rock of the 70s…
An amazing collection of rarities for one of the most important bands of Italian 70′s prog-rock: Garybaldi. This anthology contains a track that was meant to be included in their Gleemen debut, some live and alternate versions recorded between 1969 and 1998, and an amazing gem, three live tracks recorded during the Naples Be-In festival of 1973, one of the very few testimonies of those legendary festivals, as in those times no one used to record gigs in Italy! The artwork has been entirely conceived by Matteo Guarnaccia, one of the most important psychedelic painters in Italy: inspired by the famous "Nuda" cover art, he draw a marvellous triple gatefold artwork. The CD is accompanied with a DVD full of images of the band and documentaries shot in the 70s.

Constance Demby is one of the few representatives of the New Age movement (in both her music and her personal philosophies) who consistently creates artistic, highly expressive compositions. Demby was trained in classical music as a child, and her artistic spirit led her to also master several other art forms; at the University of Michigan, she studied painting, sculpture, and music. It was her work as a sculptor that led her to new dimensions of sound. As she was torching a sheet of metal, it roared thunderously, and thus was born the Sonic Steel Instruments: the Whale Sail, and the Space Bass, enormous bowed instruments with deep archetypal resonances.
