Bandhada biography
Guitarist Carlos CHUNG founded the first incarnation of BANDHADA in 1983 in Santiago, Chile. Backed by fellow students of Faculty of Arts of the University of Chile, they shaped music which was a mixture of jazz fusion and progressive rock close to CAMEL which was shown on their self-titled debut in 1984. In 1985, keyboard player Alfonso CARRERA FEELEY leaves the band to join a group called CINEMA, and for the better half of the 80's BANDHADA's music strays more in a quite sucesful pop direction which lasted up to 1991.

Inspired by the re-release of their 1984 record by Mylodon Records in 2005, three of it's original members who are currently residing in Los Angeles (CHUNG, FEELEY and bassist Philip CLARK) have reformed the group once more to release another album in 2009 that returns to their original roots. In this new line-up, Dean McCALL replaced the old drummer Eduardo CORREA and Carlos DOMINGUEZ was playing the saxophone.

4 stars A Chilean band, found in early-80's in Santiago de Chile by guitarist Carlos Chung.The rest of the crew included bassist Philip Clark, drummer Eduardo Correa, wind instrumentalist Carlos Dominguez and keyboardist Alfonso Feeley.Back at the time Bandhada had a great live activity, performing in universities, cafes and theaters, but their self-titled album from mid-80'd wouldn't have escaped obscurity if it wasn't for the Mylodon CD reissue two decades later (with a couple of live bonus tracks).

This is really stunning and airy Prog/Fusion , maybe with a Canterbury edge at moments, evoking the jazzier side of CAMEL or even Dutch legends SUPERSISTER.An all instrumental experience, containing massive breaks and interplays but also a fair dose of melodic parts.The sound is driven by the superb flute parts with a strong Classical inspiration, the jazzy guitar pieces of Chung and the CHICK COREA-like style of playing of keyboardist Feeley, including synthesizers and electric piano.The atmosphere is very optimistic, energetic and pleasant with beautiful, dreamy melodies and an incredible ability by the group to change the sound from rich musicianship to more ethereal soundscapes.They sound like a flute-driven version of TANTOR, while the solos are many but far from the self-indulgent deliveries offered by a huge number of groups performing the style.

Awesome instrumental Prog/Fusion of high calibre, where technique and melody are harmonically placed together.Highly recommended.
