Biography

There are multiple artists with this name:

1) Magma is the French brain-child of drummer/composer Christian Vander formed in Paris in 1969, disbanded in 1983 and reformed in 1996. Starting with a base of experimental rock heavily influenced by jazz and 20th century classical music, the band developed such a unique style of progressive rock that it became a new genre called . Characterized by insistent and repetitive rhythms, dramatic vocals, virtuosic solos, heavy bass playing, and jazzy drums, Zeuhl has been emulated by numerous followers from all over the world.

Much of Magma’s music is written in the constructed language known as “Kobaïan” and concerns a lengthy saga about Earth and the planet Kobaïa, with spiritual and environmental themes.
Musician John Lydon (of Public Image Ltd. and Sex Pistols fame) is known to have been a big fan, even seeing the group in concert.

3) Magma is a progressive folk group from Argentina. The music retains strong Andean influences and is notable for incorporating the flutes of the region. Their output is notable for meshing the Andean elements with Spanish folk guitar and the adoption of European song structures and instrumentation. Extended prog and folk songs see the use of both Mellotron and pan flutes. Despite being an 1980s outfit, their music is reminiscent of 70s progressive rock and 60s/70s folk. Truly a great example of music transculturation on various levels.

    IMHO K.A. is their very best album. It's just so good!

    Rocka Bogowie! Vander na sołtysa! Bardzo to jest ładne! Zerżnięte ze Strawińskiego! Ale ładne i tak, lepsze niż jakikolwiek inny ktoś, kto grał rocka! Może oprócz Kapitana Beefhearta bo on też super!

    эталон скуки, нудятины и выспренней зауми, не зря над ними гонги смеялись. Для ознакомления хватит Mekanïk Destruktïw Kommandöh, остальное лучше не слушайте вовсе
