Area is an Italian avant-prog and jazz fusion band formed in the end of 1972. They are known for being one of the most
important and astonishing combos in their genre of all times. They have been compared to Gentle Giant for the extreme
complexity combined with an elegant and debonair use of polyrhythms; but they had a stronger attitude in managing middle
east musical structures and elements, from odd rhythms to the use of tone fourths. And any of these elements are always
jointed by a free-jazz attitude and even electronics.
