Ocarinah - Première Vision De L'Étrange (1978)

The one and only album from this French band.

The band was a trio with a lineup of drums, bass, synths and guitars.

This band appeared in the early 1970s before they released this album and then disbanded. Nothing has been heard about them since then. 

This album was re-mastered and re-released on CD by a German label some years ago.

The music on this album is a bit strange. Hence.... French. France has their own take on progressive rock and fusion.

That is a good thing as this album is very dynamic and showcases a mix of eclectic prog and fusion. Canterbury prog is a good label to use on them.

The music is not really melodic. It is more eclectic and non-linear. 

The sound is not the best as the band/the original label did not use a fortune in the studio. Which is fair enough. The sound is good enough to engage the listener and that is all that is required.

The quality is decent enough. 

This is a weird album and one of the most weirdest albums in the Canterbury prog scene. 

Check it out.
