3 stars I have heard two CD's from Argentine four piece band Aqualarre: their second entitled Brumas (1974) and their third entitled Siesta (1975). I prefer Siesta because it sounds a bit less raw. In general Aquelarre delivers melodic, elaborate and alternating music on their seven compositions, often warm and a bit subdued with dreamy vocals. I am delighted about the colouring by the 'vintage keyboards' like the distinctive Hohner clavinet and the Fender Rhodes electric piano (giving the album a jazzy undertone) along organ and synthesizers. The melodic guitar work is often very sensitive, a wonderful combination with the varied keyboards and pleasant vocals. If you want to check out the very interesting Latin-American prog, this band is a nice one to discover!
