There are several bands using this name:
1) Krama is a duo band from Greece. Behind Krama Project are Greek duo Dimitris Violitzis and Elias Garanis. They start producing progressive trance music in 2001 after a lot of experiments in various styles, including experimental, i.d.m., classical etc. Dimitris Violitzis is music technologist,sound designer,and programmer and also running his solo downtempo experimental project Tau.T.C. since 2006. Elias Garanis has various studies in music theory. Since the age of 9 he's on accordeon and piano playing and from the age of 16 he has start to compose his own concerts. Both known each other at high school where they met the electronic music world and start experiment for fun. Krama's main vision is to create another style of music accessible to every ear, independently of his music background. The word Krama is Greek and means the mix of two metals which we translate as two different opinions that can be mixed to give one unique result that you can hear in the most known labels of Trance scene such Zillion Mental Anarchy, (collaboration with Maria Castell) Yellow Sunshine Explotion, Savva Records and Midijum Records.
They released their first album at Vertikal Records where you can have a full prespective of their work.
2) Krama is a blues rock band from Belarus. Founded in 1991 by former members of Rokis.
Back in 1980’s Ihar Varaškievič, the band’s leader, was known as the vocalist for Bonda. After the band’s break-up he moved back to Baranavičy and lived there until 1991 when he was invited to join Rokis.
New material written by Varaškievič which included Što dapamoža nam?, Kamendant, Biažy, chłopiec etc. was quite different from earlier Rokis’ music so it was decided to change the band’s name for Krama, the name that had been considered as a possible name for Bonda.
Three very successful albums followed. They included Chvory na rock’n’roll in 1993, Hej, tam, nalivaj! in 1994 and Kamendant in 1995. In 1994 Krama won the ‘Rock-karona’ award in Belarus and the ‘Поколение’ award in Russia and did a lot of touring in Poland.
Some problems followed and the disc Što dapamoža nam recorded in 1998 was much less of a success. In late 1990’s Ihar Varaškievič even considered quitting music sensing a lot of pressure as a result of too little changing in the band's style. This lasted until realization that there was enough to be said even withing the boundaries of classic rock. So Chavajsia ŭ bulbu was recorded (2001).
A subsequent album was recorded in 2007 – Usio žyćcio – dziŭny son.
