Flora biography
Italian band FLORA was formed in 1998 by Paolo Nicastro (vocals, guitars) and Fabrizio Lusitani (guitars). The band didn't have a stable line-up in this initial phase, but managed to score their first demo "Angosce in posa B" back then. Sometime after this initial demo Michele Tizzoni (drums), Antonio Amodeo (bass) and Leonardo Andreoli (clarinet, saxophone) joined, and in 2001 this line-up of Flora recorded their second demo "Signor Psiche".

An active live unit all along, Flora combined live performances and recording sessions for the next year or so, and in 2002 they released their official debut album "Fili Distanti". Sometime after this Amodo quits the band, and rather than replacing him Paolo Nicastro takes over the role as bassist. But come 2005 and the line-up is expanded again with Pietro Belatrami (keyboards), and this new version of Flora records "Flora" the very same year, released on Italian label Lizard Records.

Four years later some additional line-up alterations have taken place. Andreoli have left, replaced by Pina Muresu (saxophone), and Claudia Nicastro (vocals, glockenspiel) have joined. This revitalized version of Flora release "Traiettorie di Volano", again on Lizard Records in 2009. Three years later they release their fourth official album (and their sixth recording overall if you include their initial demos) "Sei" on Italian label Lizard Records.

— First review of this album —
4 stars Italian act FLORA was formed back in 1998, self-releasing their first three albums before gaining the interest of their current label Lizard Records. "6" or "Sei", if you like, is their sixth studio album, released in 2012.

Tight, firm compositions that combine elements from mainstream rock and art rock with a subtly liberal coating of jazz-tinged details may be a description of the contents of Flora's 2012 album "Sei". Compelling material, easy on the ears and the mind both without ever coming across as superficial in nature. A production that merits a check by those with a general taste for artists who create material blending aspects of progressive rock with more of a mainstream sounding one, and in particular if you have a soft spot for subtle jazz references in endeavors of this kind.

Traiettorie di Volano
Flora Crossover Prog

Review by Windhawk
Special Collaborator Honorary Collaborator

4 stars Italian act FLORA has been around since the late 90's, changing both stylistic expressions and line-ups a number of times prior to stabilizing both a few years after the millennium shift. "Traiettorie di Volano" is their third full length production, and the second to be released by the Italian label Lizard Records.

Gentle melodies and arrangements referencing post rock and jazz in various compositional details are what Flora provides on its third full length effort. The songs are generally positive and uplifting, ever so slightly mainstream oriented in style and approach, but also incorporating elements of a more sophisticated nature in an elegant manner. Pop art is my chosen description for such endeavors, and this disc will most likely find favor among others familiar with that idiom.
