Welcome to Accordo dei Contrari's music. The band is actually a unit of four different people, each with his own life, experience and (sometimes opposite) view-points. This is the reason for the name Accordo dei Contrari, which by the band's self-definition, means "Council of the Opposites". Accordo dei Contrari was formed in 2001 in Bologna, Italy, conceived as a vehicle for making original instrumental music. "Kinesis", released on AltrOck in 2007, was critically acclaimed and won the Progaward for the best Italian album of progressive rock in 2007. A second studio album, "Kublai", with special guest, Canterbury Scene notable Richard Sinclair, was delivered in 2011.
Sixth studio album of this italian prog metal band released in 2007 named "Diffrent Shapes" is an improvement over previous one, the arrangements are more precise, more direct in approach, the power metal elements are all over again, but this time are very well melted with progressive ones. Vocals remind you Rusell Allen, and the band style is a mixture of Dream Theater, Symphony X and Vision Divine.
Live at Montreux 2006: They All Came Down to Montreux is the first live release by English hard rock band Deep Purple's mk VIII lineup. This concert was recorded in Montreux, during 2006 Rapture of the Deep tour.
Akasha is an international musical collaboration reflecting a new era in the way music is being created: the musicians that are part of this group use the internet as their meeting place. Musical ideas are exchanged back and forth in cyberspace until the desired result is achieved. Singers from the UK (Tanmayo), Israel (Gerhard Fankhauser) and New Zealand (Kiri Iriwata) exchange ideas online with instrumentalists from India (Bikram Singh on flute, Avinash Jagtap on violin) and composer/producer Chinmaya Dunster. All share a deep commitment to meditation and Eastern philosophy. Their love for the ancient spiritual chants of India has lead to Yoga Spirit, a harmonic blend of East and West, acoustic and electronic instruments, created to support yoga practice.
