Founded in Coltano, Italy in 2017
ALIANTE (meaning `Glider' in English) is a new Italian instrumental band with the same bass/keyboards/drums set-up as legendary Italian progressive groups such as LE ORME and TRIADE. While this particular project is new, Aliante share a history with Nineties Neo-Proggers EGOBAND, with two of its members - bassist Alfonso Capasso and drummer Jacopo Giusti - joined here by Enrico Filippi on keys. September 2017 saw the release of their debut album `Forme Libere', where a symphonic and romantic sound dominated by lush keyboards is given a thrilling and constantly joyful modern interpretation, making it one of the most exquisite instrumental discs of the last few years.
