Despite a standard line-up (keyboards, guitar-vocals, bass & drums-percussions), TANTRA played elaborated and beautifully built and arranged Progressive songs in Portuguese, which figured at the same creative level as the best English composers (YES, GENTLE GIANT, CAMEL...) but with a distinct character. This is a full symphonic sounding band with very good musicianship. The music combines intricate ensemble parts with energetic soloing. The vocals contain an astonishing lyricism, the musical constructions and combinations are complex and inventive, the sounds are originals and the melodies beautifully made.

"Mistérios E Maravilhas" (1978) & "Holocausto" (1979) are two landmarks in Progressive rock, the latter being slightly influenced by THE MAHAVISHNU ORCHESTRA's Progressive jazz-rock. "Terra" is a new chance for this old 70´s prog group and i think the new millenium goes for a trip on... Great songs, delicate lyrics and a superb guitar voyager. « hide
