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