Alhambra biography
Alhambra are an Italian "Musical Kollektiv" based in Bologna, an open project that blends progressive, psychedelia and ethnic influences. Their debut album, "Luna Nova" was released in 2002, followed in 2005 by "Temporale". Their works have been released by Fly Agaric!, an independent label founded in 1998 by one of the members of the band, Andrea Monetti. Alhambra's members have collaborated with artists such as Chris Karrer (Amon Duul II), Lothar Stahl (Checkpoint Charlie), Christian Burchard (Embryo) and with many musicians from Bologna that share their passion for psychedelic and ethnic sounds. The present line up features Marina Girardi (vocals), Nick Le Rose (vocals, guitar, bass, bouzouki), Andrea Monetti (flute, sax, synthesizer), Pier Bernardi (oboe), Gianluca Pappalardo (guitar) and Cristina Atzori (drums).

Alhambra Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by toroddfuglesteg

3 stars A space rock collective from Italy, no less.

It is hard to find anything more spaced out than Italian politics post 1945, but this band feels they are not enough spaced out. Or do they just reflect the politics with this band and album ? Actually, that is a viewpoint I would subscribe to........

Alhambra's music is spacy and airy in the vein of the San Fransisco/West Coast wave of hippie space rock. Bands like Jefferson Airplane and Canned Heat springs to mind. But Alhambra has taken space rock some planets further out into space.

The female vocals, aided by occasional male vocals, is very fitting for this music. It is also sung in Italian and that language fits this music like a hand in a glove. Try this music in English and the fluency will disappear. So please, don't make an English version of any of the songs on this album.

The songs here is flowing into each other and the music is performed with plenty of vocals, flutes, acoustic and electric guitars, some tangents and the usual bass and drums. The use of the Australian aboriginal instrument didjeridoo also gives this album a spaced out weird feeling.

The overall quality is not that good and the final ten minutes of this album is a waste of time type of improvisations. But this album still has a lot of things going for it. Marina Girardi's vocals is superb and should give her a lot of work as a guest vocalist on other works. She is the star of the band. But there is also a lot of other good melody lines and the album is pretty much addictive. Most of it, that is. This album has grown on me and I really like it. So good three stars, it is then.

Canto Di Sabbia
Alhambra Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by toroddfuglesteg

— First review of this album —
2 stars The first ever review in PA of any of this Italian band's album. Two of them are free downloads, including this album.

I do not know much about this band. On this album, they does a very jazzy, Canterbury scene like form of prog folk based space rock. Their guitar work can be compared to Django Reinhardt with it's driving, gentle picking. The flutes is very haunting jazzy and does a lot of the solos too. The female vocals very distinctive jazz based. There is also a lot of folk music in this music too. But mostly jazz and space rock. The sound is a bit muddy though and it seems not many resources has been put into getting the sound right. This album is a free download and their music is perhaps meant to be a bit muddy, but most free downloads has far better sound than this album. The quality of the songs are not that great either. The opening song Canto di sabbia, which is a nice mix of folk and jazz, made me believe this was going to be a good album. But the quality drops off after this. But there are some very good jazz stuff on this album which makes this a very decent album. But my main problem is the sound. But if folky spaced out jazz with female vocals is your thing, this is an album down your street.

2.5 stars

Thanks to micky for the artist addition.
